20191122Friedenson.jpg Most start-ups either fail or are taken over. How did Kyocera, a start-up born in Kyoto and co-founded by Inamori Kazuo, survive and grow? Why was its relation to banks different from most other Japanese corporations? Why did it diversify into telecoms, organize to this purpose the cooperation of 24 companies, but also join the US company Motorola in the building of a constellation of 66 communication satellites which experienced debacle? How did it face the challenges of internationalization and constitute a global network? What accounts for its specific contributions to management (accountancy, human resource development, business ethics)? More generally, how do some Japanese companies remain on the edge of high technology?
