Strategic Japanese business visions – possible transposes in public services


  • Grigorescu, Adriana


Frequently, the „Japanese miracle” was a subject of discussion. The book „The Strategist Brain Power – The Business Art in Japan”, by Kenichi Ohmae (Japan, 1975) when the business environment was confronted with serious problems. The book brings, also in Romania (1998), a number of tools that can be used by businessmen in working out strategies ment to lead to performance. Even if the author is declaring himself „an enemy of governments and bureaucrats, and a great supporter of entrepreneurial initiative and private companies”, we believe that the use of the strategist’s comprehenhsion can be „a very powerful weapon, comparable with the laser” for the eradication of some problems in the public services sector. The paper aims at transposing some strategic schemes used in business, in public services, especialy by the idea of extent of freedom versus constraints.
