The knowledge-creating company : how Japanese companies create the dynamics of innovation by Ikujirō Nonaka( Book )
49 editions published between 1991 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 1,696 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
Can Japan compete? by Michael E Porter( Book )
21 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 767 libraries worldwide
"In Can Japan Compete?, the world's leading thinker on competitive strategy, Michael Porter, and his colleagues, Hirotaka Takeuchi and Mariko Sakakibara, draw upon a decade of research to untangle the mystery of Japan's economic difficulties. Doing so is critical to forecasting Japan's economic future, which is of enormous importance to companies and countries everywhere. At a deeper level, however, the book reveals the enduring principles of company strategy and economic policy in modern global competition." "With a special introduction that addresses how Japan's economic health impacts business in the United States, this groundbreaking work reveals that there have long been two Japans - the familiar one that was highly competitive and another Japan, almost invisible, that was highly uncompetitive. If the well-known Japanese government policies and corporate practices explained the nation's success, as so many people believed, why didn't they work in so many large, important parts of the economy where the model was explicitly implemented? In the areas where Japan was competitive, why was profitability so low and the cost of living for Japanese citizens so high?" "Can Japan Compete? also examines why the Japanese economy stopped generating new export industries by the mid-1980s, and why seemingly invincible industries such as semiconductors faltered." "Professor Porter and his colleagues unravel this puzzle. Incisive and thought-provoking, the book provides a compelling framework for understanding the Japanese economic roller coaster and the lessons the rest of the world should learn from it. For Japan itself, the authors conclude that what is needed is nothing less than a new national economic strategy. The book outlines the steps necessary to restore Japan's economic vitality at a time when a new direction for the nation is desperately needed."--Jacket

Extreme Toyota radical contradictions that drive success at the world's best manufacturer by Emi Osono( Sound Recording )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 126 libraries worldwide
To an outsider, Toyota is hard to understand. The company moves forward gradually while also advancing in big leaps. It is frugal with its resources while spending extravagantly on people and projects. It is both efficient and redundant; it cultivates an environment of stability and paranoia; it is hierarchical and bureaucratic, but encourages dissent; it demands that communication be simplified while building complex communication networks
