Written from the inside, The Road to Nissan goes beyond the superficial and describes the worldwide influences on Nissan's initiatives. It explodes many stereotypes about Japanese management but distills those elements which are transferable and shows how this can be achieved. The author also vigorously challenges much recent Western management thinking, offering specific remedies and proposing a totally integrated strategy aimed at achieving mutual trust and commitment with everyone working towards a common goal.

"This book analyzes how the governance of innovation can foster sustainability. The quest for innovation is consistently at the top of the agenda for policy makers around the globe, on the supra-national level, as well as for the nation states and all the way down to debates in local governance and policy boards. At the same time, sustainability is a core feature of this dialogue in creating, diffusing and using technologies and products so that human needs can be met, while unnecessary natural resources are not being used or destroyed.Based on these premises and given the complexity of sustainable innovation, there is an ever growing recognition among policy makers, industries and analysts that the development and diffusion of technological innovations need governing in order to contribute to societal goals such as climate change mitigation and resource efficiency. Such governance does not necessarily mean orchestration, imposing regulation or other policy measures in a top-down manner. Governance can be facilitated through a number of means and by various actors and different levels. This book presents a view of governance that involves almost all types of actors related to any specific sector or field. "--
