The JVCKenwood Turnaround: Management Moves That Powered A Stagnant Japanese Company Back To Profitability
At at time when some of Japan's most storied and long-established corporations are facing stagnation or outright failure, Japanese industry is looking for answers: how to cope with technological change and globalization and how to achieve growth and dynamism in a mature industry?
Haruo Kawahara, former CEO of JVCKenwood, has faced just such challenges and come out on top, bringing an ailing company quickly back to profitability. In this presentation, Mr. Kawahara will share some of the key strategies he used in the merger of Kenwood and JVC and the subsequent turn-around of JVCKenwood.
Expanding on this experience and other examples, he will describe the broader principles he used to effect change in what were two very conservative major Japanese electronics companies. In particular, he will focus on how he convinced employees to work with him in effecting change rather than put up the usual resistance.
Don't miss this opportunity to gain new insights into how Japanese industry can overcome today's challenges through enlightened management.
