    As technological complexity and novelty have grown, the consequences of technical failure have become potentially catastrophic. I have had close relationships with the Japanese managers assigned to me and with those to whom I reported in Japan. In many areas, they not only plan something and do it but also stop to see the result to determine how it could be done better. But a recent study by the Asian Development Bank found that the majority of the added value of iPhones assembled in China come from high-tech companies in Japan, Germany and South Korea, whose inputs dwarf those from American companies. Although their concepts offered the potential for great performance improvements, the innovations had to be tested thoroughly before they could be adopted, which explains why the U.

    Consider the following examples. One of the most vivid demonstrations of what can happen if it is occurred when engineers from NEC and Hitachi came to a Fujitsu research facility to work together on the MITI Supercomputer Consortium, he reports.

Meanwhile, the revisionists thought thatthe Japanese market was structurally closed to foreign companies. Unlike the economic booms of the s and s, when increasing exports played the key role in economic expansion, domestic demand propelled the Japanese economy in the late s. The boom that started in was generated by the decisions of companies to increase private plant and equipment spending and of consumers to go on a buying spree.

    For his part, Jack Welch has renounced the idea with which he was long associated. Because of poor technological choices in DRAM architecture and process design made early in the game, the U. Largely because it made better sense politically. In short, while American observers continued to dwell on theillusory gloom of the past few years, the Japanese were focusing ona bright future. I felt great that all the stress and hard work was finally paying off, and I kept waiting for my efforts to be acknowledged. Stay Focused Just as the fascination with deal making permeates U.

As they rapidly gained market share, Japanese companies in the Fifth Generation Consortium, whose goal is to develop products that would actually sell in the marketplace, wanted to shift the focus of their research to these machines.

Our research in the semiconductor industry documents these ideas in detail.

Why the Best Success Stories Often Begin With Failure

The advantage now often goes to the companies most adept at choosing technologies, not to the companies that create them.

They get to know each other as whole people. She told Fiegerman that her first novel was so bad even her mother hated it. Hataya, who could then informally influence the president.

Advertisement: Unable to identify what particular shareholders want, CEOs with the encouragement of Wall Street have treated short-term earnings as a reliable proxy for shareholder value.

Each new production step increases the risk of expensive manufacturing failures. Indeed, changes in the process were a key reason for the resurgence of U. I was amazed at how easily the Japanese would jump on an airplane to visit a customer.

Japanesecompanies have failed to parlay their strengths in commodity memorychips, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, and flat paneldisplays into domination of the larger computer industry—despitesuch industrial policy programs as the Fifth Generation ComputerProject.
