industries. This study tackles the problems facing cluster-based
industrial development and suggests effective strategies for a more
successful future. Based on a number of case studies and the
results of six KAIZEN management training experiments, this book
has found that efficient management is the key to the innovation,
which, in turn, is a major engine of firm and industrial growth.
The studies undertaken reveal that management training not only
enhances management capacity of entrepreneurs but also serves as an
effective screening device to identify promising and non-promising

strategy. This book is essential reading for scholars and
researchers interested in economic development and industrial
