While Japanese management has proved highly skilled in exploiting product and process technology, Brian Hunt and David Targett argue that the situation is different with IT.
Western and Japanese companies are beginning to fight major strategic battles in Europe and the authors describe ways in which Western companies could exploit weaknesses in Japanese IT strategy. At the same time they suggest how Japanese companies, especially their European divisions, might sharpen their competitive edge.
Ten original case studies featuring top Japanese companies are featured, each of which illustrates a different aspect of IT strategy: All Nippon Airways Ltd, Daiwa Europe Ltd, Hitachi Europe Ltd, Japan Travel Bureau (Europe) Ltd, JVC (UK) Ltd, Kobe Steel Europe Ltd, Nissan Motor (GB) Ltd, Nissan Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd, Sony (UK) Ltd, Toshiba Information Systems (UK) Ltd.
Includes 10 original case studies from companies such as Hitachi Europe Ltd, JVC (UK) Ltd, Nissan Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd, Sony (UK) Ltd

Nine case studies are featured in the book, each one illustrating a different aspect of IT strategy.

It shows how Japanese organizations apply, view, invest in and implement IT and suggests what organizations, both Western and Japanese, could learn from this experience with IT. It describes ways in which Western companies could exploit the weaknesses in Japanese IT strategies, and at the same time suggests ways in which the Japanese companies, especially their European divisions, might sharpen their edges.
