Japan technology companies – the future?

Japan technology companies – how to move to the future?

Gave a talk to a group of about 50 CEOs of the Japan subsidiaries of global companies on the topic “A future for Japan’s tech companies?”

I talked about the same issues as at the TTI-Vanguard Forum about a year earlier, and started again with the conclusions:

Japan technology companies – First to develop many technologies, but not good enough in capturing global value

  • Conclusions 1: Japan has invented and first brought to market many new technologies and business models in today’s hottest areas, and Japan is not good enough at capturing global value from this incredible creativity
  • Conclusions 2: why does it take at least 10 years to reinvent the wheel in London?
  • Conclusions 3: WHAT is holding Japan back to capture global value from fantastic inventions?
