The article was wqritten in 1997. It is interesting to know how Japanese business was viewd 17 years ago. I do not think the story will aply to any current Japanese companies, but this article can be valued as historical notes.

Comparing the contents in this article and current condition, reader can find out why Japanese companies are losing their status in this global business. I reccomend that Japanese executives to read article carefully so that they can make corrections or modifications in their organizational charts.
