Keio Business School Professor Haruo Takagi's MBA Class Live Management Theory
This is the long-awaited sequel to Keio Business School Professor Haruo Takagi's "MBA Class Live [Leadership Theory]," which recorded his Keio Business School lectures in a live broadcast style. This time, with the theme of management, a case method prepared by Harvard Business School is being developed.
Five cases are examined throughout this book:
The case of David Cutler, a charismatic programmer who led Microsoft's Windows NT project, the case of Sumitomo Electric Industries, which survived the Great Hanshin Earthquake, and organizational problems which hindered the flow of information and business activities. The case of the marine tourism business, the case of Mr. Kobayashi of St. Paul Pharmaceutical, who makes readers think about the placement, transfer and motivation, the case of Mr. Enomoto who was sentenced to restructuring after joining a major trading company, etc.
Through these, readers learn from project management to risk management and various issues related to human resources.
As the author often notes, reading a case requires a self-directed learning attitude. You should be able to gain your own thoughts and new knowledge by not only reading, but by accurately grasping the situation of each case and following the process of problem finding and problem solving.
