Revitalizing Ethiopia's Manufacturing Enterprises through the Japanese Production Management Strategy
Currently, the Ethiopian manufacturers are at a disadvantage in the international market due to the preponderance of unskilled human resources, the scarcity of capital and differentiated management tools, and the lack of knowledge-based technology. The major span of the book entitled Revitalizing Ethiopia's Manufacturing Enterprises through the Japanese Production Management Strategy "Kaizen": A Critical Analysis explores in detail how a number of public and private enterprises in contemporary Ethiopia are in the process of discarding the Benchmarking process and the Business Process Reengineering techniques and redesigning their manufacturing and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) institutions to apply the Japanese Kaizen strategy in order to continuously improve their manpower, quality, and productivity of their products and services. Based on the various enterprises explored, Desta's book demonstrates that if applied properly, the kaizen system in Ethiopia would empower and liberate the thinking of both management and employees at all levels of an organization to provide a climate in which creativity, setting standardization, and value addition would enable Ethiopia's manufacturing enterprises to eventually improve their competitiveness in the global market. More specifically, Professor Desta's book is written for a wide audience, including manufactures, policy makers, entrepreneurs, and students, professors whose fields and interest embrace Kaizen as a management strategy for attaining sustainable development in the long run. ~ Tate Publishing
