This fascinating analysis aims to give the West a more balanced and realistic understanding of the key reasons for Japan's success. It will be of value to those intending to do business with Japanese companies, to those thinking of visiting Japan, to those wishing to compete or even just survive, against the nation which is the world's most successful economic power. Written in plain and accessible language the lessons for the West are spelled out clearly: education, management concerned with developing people's potential, and relevant workplace training are the "secrets" of Japanese success.
