Technology and Industrial Development in Japan: Building Capabilities by Learning, Innovation and Public Policy Hiroyuki Odagiri and Akira Goto Abstract Japan was the first major non-Western nation to take on board the Western technological and organizational advances of the century after the first industrial revolution.
It subsequently proved fully able to exploit and contribute to the broad, sustained technological advances that began in the 20th century, as science became harnessed to technology.
Japan's economic development remains a model for many technologically less advanced countries which have not yet mastered modern technology to organizational forms. Knowledge of Japanese technological and economic history can contribute importantly More Japan was the first major non-Western nation to take on board the Western technological and organizational advances of the century after the first industrial revolution.
Knowledge of Japanese technological and economic history can contribute importantly to our understanding of economic growth in the modern era. This book studies the industrial development of Japan since the midth century, with particular emphasis on how the various industries built technological capabilities.
The Japanese were extraordinarily creative in searching out and learning to use modern technologies, and the book investigates: The book investigates the interaction between private entrepreneurial activities and public policy through a general examination of economic and industrial development, a study of the evolution of management systems, and six industrial case studies: The book shows how the Japanese government has played an important supportive role in the continuing innovation, without being a substitute for aggressive business enterprise constantly venturing into unfamiliar terrains.Innovation is considered from both the perspectives of process and product, social innovations (regulation and policy as well as creation of non-economic benefit), conceptualization of a new technology-based product or process through commercial utilization.
Innovation typically begins with a new technical concept or other bright idea. But the idea is just the first step on the long path to successful innovation.
Technical change usually . The diffusion of innovation refers to the tendency of new products, practices, or ideas to spread among people. Usually, when new products or ideas come about, they are only adopted by a small group of people initially; later, many innovations spread to other people.
“Innovation: First of all, here is my own definition of innovation: ‘invention refers to new concepts or products that derive from individual’s ideas or from scientific research. Innovation, on the other hand, is the commercialization of the invention itself”.
Technical innovations to the loom occurred throughout the eighteenth century as weavers tried to speed up the process of loom preparation and weaving.
Philippe de Lasalle (–), a designer, weaver, and entrepreneur working in Lyon, invented a removable version of a device called a semple. 2 Information Technology, Workplace Organization and the Demand for Skilled Labor: Firm-level Evidence ABSTRACT We investigate the hypothesis that the combination of three related innovations, 1).
