The knowledge-creating company : how Japanese companies create the dynamics of innovation by Ikujirō Nonaka( Book )
40 editions published between 1991 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,459 libraries worldwide
Two leading Japanese business experts, Ikujiro Nonaka and Hirotaka Takeuchi, are the first to tie the performance of Japanese companies to their ability to create new knowledge and use it to produce successful products and technologies. In The Knowledge-Creating Company, Nonaka and Takeuchi provide an inside look at how Japanese companies go about creating this new knowledge organizationally. The authors point out that there are two types of knowledge: explicit knowledge, contained in manuals and procedures, and tacit knowledge, learned only by experience, and communicated only indirectly, through metaphor and analogy. U.S. managers focus on explicit knowledge; the Japanese, on the other hand, focus on tacit knowledge. And this, the authors argue, is the key to their success - the Japanese have learned how to convert tacit into explicit knowledge
Enabling knowledge creation : how to unlock the mystery of tacit knowledge and release the power of innovation by George Von Krogh( Book )
25 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 753 libraries worldwide
"Weaving together lessons from such international leaders as Siemens, Unilever, Skandia, and Sony, along with their own firsthand consulting experiences, the authors introduce knowledge enabling - the overall set of organizational activities that promote knowledge creation - and demonstrate its power to transform an organization's knowledge into value-creating actions. They describe the five key "knowledge enablers" and outline what it takes to instill a knowledge vision, manage conversations, mobilize knowledge activists, create the right context for knowledge creation, and globalize local knowledge." "This sequel puts practical tools into the hands of managers and executives who are struggling to unleash the power of knowledge in their organization."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Relentless : the Japanese way of marketing by Johny K Johansson( Book )
16 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and Chinese and held by 630 libraries worldwide
That situation is likely to change with the publication of Relentless. A trenchant analysis of Japanese marketing strategy in the international arena, it denotes a unique collaboration between Western and Eastern marketing expertise. Professors Johansson and Nonaka present their detailed study of Japanese life in general, and domestic marketing in particular, to reveal the imperatives of Japanese marketers abroad and to sum up the fundamental themes of Japanese marketing philosophy. With anecdotes as vivid as an Escher print, the authors explore the Japanese marketing mind to show how it uniquely defines each business relationship and motivates every action, inverting most of what Western enterprises do and think. The result is a penetrating insight into the ego of the Japanese marketer and a vital tool for any Western manager who faces Japanese competition now or in the future

"There is currently a great shift towards a knowledge-based economy, where knowledge is the most important resource, superseding the traditional resources of land, capital, and labour. With this in mind, this book presents the latest developments in knowledge creation and management theory by the leading scholar in the field, Ikujiro Nonaka. It expands on and enriches existing knowledge-based theory, and explores process theory in 10 case studies of successful global Japanese firms, such as Eisai, Canon, Honda, and Toyota. It explores knowledge management as a global concept and is relevant to any company that wants to prosper and thrive in the global economy."--Jacket

Phronesis and quiddity in management : a school of knowledge approach by Kimio Kase( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 52 libraries worldwide
Phronesis and Quiddity in Management addresses the issue of excellence in judgement-making, its concept and characterisation. Through a combination of Aristotle's phronesis and Izutsu's consciousness (Bewusstsein), the authors explore the concept of 'phronesis' (or its translation as 'wisdom' or 'practical wisdom') to emphasise its conceptual dependence on Aristotle. At the same time, however, this book also stresses another conceptual derivation from Toshihiko Izutsu's main work, Consciousness and Quiddity, in that it is inspired by the metaphysical thesis of the Japanese philosopher. The authors investigate, firstly, what constitutes excellent managerial skills centred on leadership revolving around judgement-making (rather than decision-making) and, secondly, whether such skills can be taught
