Managing for Creativity in Japan Talking with Foreign Executives in Japan

Need a Japanese Face

It is important for me to have [Japanese staff in my company] because we need to have a strong Japanese face – I don’t want to be seen as just a gaijin company. I want to have a certain level of respect from Japanese people and because there are very specific Japanese ways of doing things here I need to have Japanese staff. I hope to start to implement more international ways of looking at things into the industry but this is still the beginning.
