Managing for Creativity in Japan Talking with Foreign Executives in Japan

Passing Tests

I do think that there are certain tests that you have to pass with Japanese people. At first they think that you are just some foreigner who is coming over for three months and they don’t want to invest time in you and take the time to know you. But if you have been around for three years or more then you have passed that test of time I think. It’s definitely a trust issue.
