Easternisation: The Spread of Japanese Management Techniques to Developing Countries

Published on 1 January 1994

Japanese industry has shown its superiority in a range of traded goods sectors. It was thought that this competitive advantage arose from the use of electronics-based flexible automation technologies, but it is now clear that the major source of this industrial strength can be found in the development and diffusion of new management techniques such as just-in-time production and total quality management. This practical book is relevant to those involved in policy and production, and in teaching and research.
