  • Description
  • Contents

The effective utilization of human resources has been a key factor in Japan’s economic success. Since many would like to emulate the Japanese success story, there has been worldwide interest in Japanese human resource development.

In this insightful text, Hideo Inohara provides a thorough explanation of the external and internal factors on work organization in Japan. Also covered in detail is a review of all aspects of personnel management in Japan. Inohara clarifies and reveals the realities of Japanese personnel management and labor relations. In addition, he sheds light on the controversy over the “transferability” of Japanese human resource practices to other countries. Case studies of the Canon Corporation, Isetan Department Store, and Orii Company provide the opportunity to view Japanese human resource development in the everyday work environment. The author also includes explanations of human resource practices in Japanese subsidiaries located in Europe.

This text serves as a basic and comprehensive reference for managers and students who would like to learn positive as well as negative lessons from Japanese development of human resources.
