Abstract:

Kyoto is a place where world-class high-tech industries exist alongside heritage industries. Achieving highly competitive strength by keeping a step ahead of the global standard, Kyoto also maintains the spirit of harmony that distinguishes Japanese style management. What is the essence of this style of management? How has Kyoto's traditional culture as a part of daily life been preserved? A study of various unique approaches, based on interviews with managers and craftspeople, this book covers topics from distinct management styles aimed at increasing workforce motivation to the development of capabilities that yield products with high cultural value, and innovation for the sake of business continuity. This book includes hints for the future management of not only Japanese firms but also businesses worldwide.--adapted from publisher's description.
