Management in Japan, Korea, East and Southeast Asia – this is a fascinating topic. Can the dialogue between this region with other regions of the world help to improve the quality of management? Can it help to improve individual's work and private life? Yes, it can!
East Asian Countries have developed each their very unique styles of management: it can be understood as the development of human being. Its goal is beauty of the heart. As a result, in Japan for example, employment relations in economic strong companies are based on seniority and life-time employment – quite similar as family relations. Management is supposed for taking responsibility for a social behavior in society. Obviously, the contributions made in Japan for the global development of management both in companies and in the academic field are based on these values. Japanese management style is much more then "kaizen" or "kanban". It is rather a philosophy of its own.
Intercultural dialog needs experience in at least two cultural regions. Before having a chair as university professor in Japan, I helt positions in Europe on the management side, the labour side and the government side. This experience, seeing the same challenge from different angles, made in the European culture showed me, that balanced ideas, straightness and a clear expressed mind are crucial on the way for confidence and success.
