Practical Wisdom

by Hirotaka Takeuchi


I am writing a book with Ikujiro Nonaka that will build on "The Wise Leader" article we published in the May 2011 issue of Harvard Business Review.  It will be a sequel to "The Knowledge - Creating Company" book we wrote in 1995.  We will put more emphasis in our new book on practical wisdom, or what Aristotle called phronesis: experiential knowledge that enables people to make ethically sound judgment.
