Abstract

Japan's phenomenal post-war transformation into a high-tech nation of vending machines, electric toilets and 24-hour convenience stores, has been the envy of most developed nations. Where, in the past, the country would look towards America, with the import of Western goods, services and business philosophy, Japan has recently taken a turn towards that of self-discovery. In the book, Rediscovering Japanese Business Leadership, author Yozo Hasegawa examines how some of Japan's leading brands, like Nintendo, Uniqlo and Canon, have weathered, quite stealthily, the recent global financial meltdown, and he makes a case for why more Japanese companies are returning to home-grown business values.
