Book description

The Routledge Handbook of Japanese Business and Management provides a comprehensive overview of management and business processes and practices in Japanese companies. The contributors combine theoretical findings and research results with a practical and contemporary view on how corporations and firms are managed in Japan.

The handbook is divided into eight sections covering:

  • historical perspectives on Japanese management;
  • structure and theory of the Japanese firm;
  • the corporate environment in Japan;
  • the Japanese work environment;
  • the Japanese market;
  • manufacturing and logistics;
  • interaction and communication;
  • the future of Japanese management.

This book is an essential reference resource for students and scholars working on Japanese companies, the Japanese market-place, Japanese consumers, or management processes in the Japanese firm. The book also provides an interesting and informative read for managers who need to deepen their knowledge on Japanese business processes.
