Hirotaka "Hiro" Takeuchi is a professor in the strategy unit at Harvard Business School, as well as a former dean of the Graduate School of International Corporate Strategy at Hitotsubashi University in Tokyo. Takeuchi's management theories focus on the human element in business, and the contextual importance of mission, values, and vision. At HBS, Takeuchi teaches a course focused on what he calls "knowledge-based strategy." Takeuchi, who holds an MBA and PhD from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley, believes that companies and people operate according to their mission and belief systems, and that companies differ only because their leaders envision different futures. In 2017, Takeuchi and his research partner Jiro Nonaka at Hitotsubashi University will release a book exploring knowledge-practicing companies.
