"The particular benefit of this book is that it distinguishes a technology life cycle and analyzes each of its stages: research and development, process and product development, manufacturing management and methods, technology deployment, and organizational learning."--Booklist
"In the end, the edited volume provides a smorgasbord for readers: some will try every offering, others will sample only those which are most appealing."--Journal of Product Innovation Management
From the Publisher:
Engineered in Japan: Japanese Technology-Management Practices presents a unique and comprehensive examination of technology management in the most successful Japanese companies. Each chapter is based on original research by noted scholars in the field, and identifies technology management practices that have become a major source of competitive advantage for highly successful Japanese companies. Engineered in Japan documents the best practices from such companies as Toyota, Hitachi, Toshiba, and Nippondenso, and discusses how these technology management practices can be usefully adopted in other cultural contexts. "U.S. managers can perhaps learn more from the process of creation in Japan and the organizational structures that support innovation", say the editors in their introduction, "than from the particular approaches, tools, and technologies created". A running theme throughout the book is that Japanese managers and engineers tend to think in terms of systems, focusing not just on the parts but on the connections between them. Engineered in Japan is must reading for technology managers and engineers, along with anyone interested in Japanese business, engineering, and management.
