(How) Does the SECI Model Work in Western Cultures?

The SECI concept was developed (and works extremely well) for Japanese businesses (culture). I would be interested in how it is applied in Japan.
I believe it will not work well in western cultures that have a hierarchical approach to management (top down), where the boss "knows it all" and tells you what to do.

Implementing SECI in Western Cultures

Dear Mr. Passlow, you are right referring to "hierarchical top-down know it all cultures"
Highly supported by many consulting firms. However the current dynamic circumstances and their effects on the business results bring many companies to look for "top-down bottom-up" solutions where "our" SECI is based on a humanitarian approach.
The workers will cooperate and follow reasonable solutions once you find the right mixture of "stick & carrot".
We are currently developing a SECI-BA system for a hierarchical organization.
Next year I'll tell if it is manageable...
