Ep. 59 Yuji Yamada on Reinventing Organisations through a Japanese lens

Yuji Yamada is the founder of EnFlow and is interested in exploring the differences between approaching organisational transformation from a ‘Western lens’ and a Japanese lens. We talk about teal organisations from Frederic Laloux’s book ‘Reinventing Organisations’ (which has sold 100,000 copies in Japan) and Yuji’s homegrown concept of ‘Jinen management’. Could East Asian organisations be at an advantage in developing new ways of working by drawing on their ancient wisdom and inherent cultural paradigms of interconnectedness?  How to follow Yuji: Twitter: @yujiyamada0522 Resources: Yuji’s Medium post, ‘The trends of Teal organization in Japan’ The book ‘The Geography of Thought: How Asians and Westerners Think Differently’ by Richard E.
