helped Manufacturing productivity, how about Sales and Management
In the world, "IT" has been used and prevailed
ubiquitously into whole society extending from finance,
manufacturing, telecommunication, distribution function
( since 1960) and Japan made it almost perfect in Enterprise
until 1985 .
USA was terribly troubled by the economic problems in all
late 70s and work very hard to enhanced SME and promote
ventures to create new jobs with VC investment and deregulations
in 1980s, restructure education, saving bank and security
motivation for venture entrepreneurs, in addition, I would
put up the fact that Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award
was created by Public Law 100-107, signed into law on August
The Award Program, responsive to the purposes of Public
Law 100-107, led to the creation of a new public-private
partnership. Principal support for the program comes from
the Foundation for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality
Award, established in 1988.
The Award is named for Malcolm Baldrige, who served as Secretary
of Commerce from 1981 until his tragic death in a rodeo
accident in 1987. His managerial excellence contributed
to long-term improvement (20 years) in efficiency and effectiveness
Initiatives are given to management of Production to Management
of sales excellence and to even to marketing (since 1980)
and sales function (Since 1990), for Governance (Since 95)
utilizing full hedge of internet and PC cultures.
【2:After Japan lost 10
years, now it is the time to restructure Marketing and Sales
for Open & Global market opportunity via Customer Centric
relationship management 】
We need to go to Open and global business to regain momentum
of leadership of economy, politics and culture.
After 1990 started, Japan slowed down severally on economy
for a decade and global challenge spirit was almost totally
faded out except Automobile, Camera, and some game and art
Technology of Broad band, cell phone with internet, had
outstandingly led the world far some years ago by Japanese
makers and by challenging operator headed by Digital phone
and DOCOMO intra Japan .But all Japan teams had failed to
work with Global Open Standard in collaboration with an
agreement or and with strategic alliance political games
with Europe and USA.
So, even now, it seems Japan has not having a favorable
global strategy for all especially on IT related global
As a general trend of IT, now we need to catch up with
the knowledge based on global & open IT infrastructure
of enterprises, whose majority of asset is no more tangible
asset ( 20 years ago it had 80%) but now only 20% less and
more than 80% of top enterprise assets were found in 2002
from intangible asset.
The value of intangible asset is only valued if it has been
shared & used for action. Without action based upon
the information value shared, there is no value to society.
So to monitor and mange the intangible asset has much different
process of monitoring and managing the tangible asset.
