Opis treści

This book is an attempt at broadening the knowledge on the operation of Japanese enterprises in
Europe from the point of view of a harmonious cooperation with the surrounding environment and a
possibility to transfer Japanese supply chain management methods to countries at different stages of
social and economic development. Therefore, Great Britain was selected for comparative study, which
used to be the original direction of foreign expansion of Japanese corporations in Europe, and Poland,
where Japanese companies started to operate a few years after the transformation of political system
in the second half of the 90s in the last century. The authors understand Japanese supply chains as
companies cooperating in different areas of operation of a company, among which the role of the
leader and the central coordinator of the information, goods and financial means is fulfilled by entities
with a predominance of Japanese capital. Additionally, in the entity structure of those supply chains
prevail Japanese suppliers of goods and services.
