Research Overview

Knowledge is a powerful source of competitive advantage in modern enterprise management.
Knowledge creation is vital so that sharing information and knowledge through customers' opinion and actual work places could be articulated to an organizational knowledge to create added value by knowledge creation.
Multinational companies face global competition and deploy a useful knowledge and information to create new knowledge around the world.
In my research, I compare the current state of art for knowledge creation, interorganizational learning, and personnel training in Japanese and American companies, to examine the state of organizations to promote knowledge creation, transfer of knowledge in trans-cultural organizations, and personnel management.
