A decade after overtaking the U.S. economy and achieving global dominance, the Japanese juggernaut faltered dramatically. Today the question is not who dominates whom, but rather how we manage our now-obvious interdependence. The answer is the legions of Japanese and American managers and officials involved in the day-to-day and face-to-face negotiations that drive commerce. In this invaluable book, three experts pool their decades of experience to provide a pragmatic guide for Westerners doing business in Japan. The authors explain Japanese negotiating techniques and provide practical advice on conducting effective meetings with Japanese clients.
