Business Innovation in Asia - Knowledge and Technology Networks from Japan

Dennis L. McNamara. Business Innovation in Asia - Knowledge and Technology Networks from Japan. London: Routledge, 2009.

Industrial competition with rising economies, new regional investment from the West, and trade pacts among competitors threaten Japan’s long postwar prominence in East Asia. Global market dynamics and regional competition prompted the shift from offshore factories to integrated local networks in the last decade. This volume looks to "knowledge networks" embedded in Global Value Chains. Through survey evidence and interviews at Japanese affiliates in China, Korea, and Thailand, this book highlights problems of knowledge transfer. A comparison of Nikkei knowledge networks in the three target nations reveals initial patterns and future potential of an interactive learning community in cross-border investment. If Japan can meet the challenge of tapping Asia’s offshore resources for innovation, it will pose a formidable global challenge to Western competitors
