This open access book provides a glimpse into the Japanese management technique, "Kaizen", and the ways it has been exported around the developing world. Even as narratives about the developing world in recent years has focused on China, Japanese aid and management techniques have provided a real alternative to Western institutions as well as China's Belt and Road Initiative, offering not only capital but also innovative techniques. With case studies from across Africa and Asia, this book will be of value to scholars, policymakers and advocates of sustainable development.
