About This Book

Translated from Japanese, this critical assessment of contemporary perceptions of Japanese companies may come as something of a surprise to foreign readers. Senior management analysts query many generally accepted ideas including: that personnel assessments are fair; that workshop information is shared; that irregular workers suffer no discrimination; sub-contractors' risks are shared and Labour Unions do bargain; and that business theories including Koike Kuo's Skill Theory, Aoki's theory of competitiveness and of the J-firm are actually applicable. With references and index.
