Many books examine the 'sacred treasures' of Japanese management --lifetime employment, seniority wage and promotion, consensus decision-making, and enterprise unionism. This book goes further and examines how managers actually operate on a day-to-day basis within the Japanese firm. Topics covered include the cultural and economic setting of Japanese management as well as planning, staffing, career development and evaluation, compensation, communication, and organizational improvement.
