    • Creating knowledge and promoting innovation in logistics services with “personal-touch”: a case of Yamato transport

      © 2018, © Operational Research Society 2018. “TA-Q-BIN” parcel delivery service by Yamato Transport Co., Ltd (hereafter Yamato Transport) is regarded equivalent to a social infrastructure in Japan. Since its start in 1976, Yamato Transport has extended services’ reach and volume, realising nationwide coverage in 1997 and achieving around 30 billion accumulated deliveries by the end of March 2017. Behind this achievement is the company’s continuous innovation of their service offerings not only by enhancing its digital information systems and its physical logistic networks but also by keeping analogue “personal-touch” and improving the service beyond customers’ expectation. Personal touch at the point of delivery triggers new knowledge which becomes the source of competitiveness. Grounding on the organisational knowledge creation theory, this paper aims to explain how Yamato Transport was able to enhance competitive advantage through creating new knowledge by pursuing both the “personal-touch” and the digitalisation, and ultimately realising innovation, and ultimately co-creating value for the society.

    • ‘Meso’-Foundations of Dynamic Capabilities: Team-Level Synthesis and Distributed Leadership as the Source of Dynamic Creativity

      Copyright © 2016 Strategic Management Society Plain language summary: Globalization has transformed the international business environment into an increasingly more complex, uncertain, and diverse entity. Multinational enterprises are under greater pressure to develop their dynamic capabilities to not only adapt to, but also proactively cope with, the speed and complexities of the fast-changing environment. Some research suggests that dynamic capabilities are closely correlated with top management functions, while counterarguments stress that dynamic capabilities are embedded in organizational activities. From the perspective of organizational knowledge creation, making a distinction between the creative and adaptive aspects of dynamic capabilities, this article argues that ‘creative’ dynamic capabilities are rooted in the activities of teams in middle levels of the organization. The article also presents leadership practices that are favorable to fostering dynamic capabilities. Technical summary: This article examines the theoretical foundations of an organization's dynamic capabilities—sensing, seizing, and transforming—from the perspective of organizational knowledge creation. Making a distinction between the creative and adaptive aspects of dynamic capabilities, this article argues that the foundation of creative aspect is ‘meso:’ it stems from team-level interactions of frontline workers' capabilities facilitated by middle managers, rather than from individual-level (or micro-level) capabilities. In this middle-up-down management model, top management sets the vision of the organization, but middle managers grasp and solve the gap between the top and the frontline by facilitating team-level dialectic interactions of employees. The leadership practices of both top and middle management that facilitate this process are illustrated with four Japanese multinational companies—Fujifilm, Eisai, Mayekawa Manufacturing, and Toyota.

    • Dynamic fractal organizations for promoting knowledge-based transformation - A new paradigm for organizational theory

      How can a company become sustainably innovative? We propose that the company needs to have organizational forms that achieve a dynamic synthesis of knowledge exploration and exploitation. In this paper, we present the "dynamic fractal organization" as a new organizational model. This model departs from the conventional information processing paradigm. Instead, we present a new frontier in organizational theory: the "dynamic fractal organization based on dynamic 'ba'." Dynamic fractal organizations build and utilize a triad relationship of knowledge that integrates and synthesizes tacit and explicit knowledge and creates a third type of knowledge, phronesis. The triad relationship is an upward spiraling process of converting tacit and explicit knowledge, and propels sustainable knowledge transformation across the diverse boundaries within and between organizations, and their environments. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
