Продолжающееся преобразование Асахи Глас (Asahi Glass): применение EVA

Тошия Ивасаки, основавший нашу компанию в 1907 году, после множества неудач удалось преуспеть в организации первого в Японии производства плоского стекла. Он говорил: “Никогда не следуйте по самому простому пути, боритесь с трудностями.” Он построил корпоративную культуру таким образом, чтобы иметь возможность решать самый трудные проблемы. Шиня Ишицу, Президент и генеральный директор (CEO)

Шиня Ишицу был в трудной ситуации в своём подразделении. Являясь президентом и генеральным директором Asahi Glass (AGC) он руководил базирующейся в Японии многонациональной корпорацией по производству плоского стекла, химии, электроники и дисплеев, с ежегодной стоимостью продаж в размере 1,3 трлн. японских йен, и с самой большой рыночной долей на мировом рынке большинства категорий свои товаров. По всему миру AGC контролировала сеть из более чем 200 дочерних предприятий и филиалов в 25 странах, генерируя операционной прибыли (operating profit) от операций за рубежом в размере 52,4 миллиарда японских йен в 2003 финансовом году. Это шестое место среди самых крупных Японских предприятий[1]. (Финансовую информацию см. в Приложении 1, участие AGC на мировом рынке – Приложение 2.) После того, как он был назначен на должность президента и генерального директора в 1998 году, Ишицу положил начало ряду существенны изменений структуры компании и её корпоративной культуры для того, чтобы создать действительно многонациональную корпорацию. В 2002 году он разделил AGC на четыре бизнес - направления на основе и положения на мировом рынке, названными “внутренними компаниями” и назначил для управления стекольным бизнесом двух исполнительны директоров, которые не были японцами. Стекольный бизнес являлся основным для компании и составлял 53% от всех продаж и 56% от размера…...

Asahi Case Study

...analytical problem of selecting a business or corporate strategy has been dealt with, we should know what to do. Knowing how to execute the selected strategy is essential to success. To the extent possible in each case, we will concern ourselves with the various combinations of systems (for example, information, control, reward, etc.), organization structures, and people necessary to execute a given strategy. We will test our ideas about the relationships between strategy and these other elements as we proceed through the course. General Flow of the Course The assignments are detailed in a later section. Please read through them to get an idea of the specific content of the course and each class meeting. In general, we will start with single-business or dominant-business companies and proceed to multiple-business companies. Similarly, we will begin with basic techniques of analysis and then expand and modify them to fit a range of situations. We will examine many sectors of the economy (for example basic industries, consumer products, service businesses, hybrids). As we proceed through the course, the classes and cases used in them will “build” on each other in such a way that the knowledge and skills gained in analyzing one session can be used in subsequent cases. Throughout the course we will maintain our concern with both analysis and implementation. Required Readings One book is required for the course and most of its chapters will be......

Asahi Breweries

...Asahi Breweries Introduction Asahi Breweries is Japanese beer producer with a long history of operations since 1949. Prior to 1949 Asahi Breweries was a part of Dai Nippon, a large conglomerate of dif-ferent companies. After the defeat in World War II the allied forces forced Dai Nippon and other dominant companies to split. Dai Nippon Breweries was split into Sapporo Breweries and Asahi Breweries in 1949. At the time of split there were three major players in Japanese beer market – Sapporo Breweries, Asahi Breweries, and Kirin Breweries. Each of the brewer-ies roughly occupied about 1/3 of the market share. However in 30 years beer market in Japan has changed. Kirin Breweries was the biggest mover in the market during that period having increased its market share from 25.3 percent in 1949 up to 63.8 percent by 1976. Japanese culture is characterized by conservatism in everything even in beer. Lager beer has been the most popular kind of beer in Japan and by 1980s Kirin’s had used its commanding market share to capitalize on the lager beer and Kirin’s pasteurized lager beer became the industry standard. Asahi breweries in contrast were in a downward spiral – sales have been decreasing, expired inventories became a major problem that led to laying off 550 employees out of total 3200. Analysis Asahi Breweries were able to turn things around with the help of revolutionary presi-dents – Tsutomu Murai and Hirotaro Higuchi. Tsutom Murai became a president of Asahi Breweries...

Asahi Glass Company Analysis

...MGMT 700 Asahi Glass Company Asahi Glass Company was Japan’s first sheet glass manufacturer beginning in 1909 and became an industry leader in the glass manufacturing business. The company diversified its glass business into several ventures – chemical, electronics, ceramics, and construction materials. The diversification into the various industries as noted above was very successful, as by the 1950 to early 1970’s following the second world-war Asahi’s glass and construction materials business accounted for more than 50% of its total revenue, and its chemical business at 40% and other business segments including electronics and ceramics contributing to 10% of the company’s total revenue. By 1992, the company’s glass (flat glass) business segment contributed 56% of total sales and revenue making it the most profitable segment out of the four diversification business segments. I believe AGC’s diversification was much needed post the second world-war, as it helped serve as the foundation to emerging technologies and manufacturing of newer consumer products – cements, automotive lighting, paints, chemicals such as chlorofluorocarbons – CFC for refrigerators and air conditioners. Following the oil crisis in the early 1990’s, AGC management – then President Mr. Sakabe decided to focus on the company’s electronic......

...CASE STUDY 2 I. THE ARALIN TEACHER Mrs. Boots De Vola was assigned to teach the first section in third year level. She assumed that she is an effective and efficient teacher in Araling Panlipunan because of that. There are many teachers qualified and much deserving to teach the star section. Now, the students are complaining of the expenses regarding projects, special projects and the way she behave in classroom. II. HISTORY AND BACKGROUND OF THE FACTS Mrs. Boots De Vola have underwent the process of being LSB teacher, PSB teacher, before she was declared as regular teacher in Banana National High School. It has been five years that she handled Aralin in section one. There are congruency on each year complaint but since the students are afraid of failing her subject they remained quiet. I seldom hear news about her projects and the money she collected from her advisory class. Every single mistake has an specified amount to be collected as fine, but the students don’t know where these money will be spent. Another concern about Mrs. Boots De Vola is the way she handled and treated her students. She always nag and shout to students, for her it’s the way of disciplining her students. Some of the students chose to dropped schooling because they felt being degraded and they do not have money for everyday fine. Lately, a mother asked her about the special project of her son amounting one hundred thirty pesos. The project was properly discussed, but we found out that......

...A Guide to Case Analysis I keep six honest serving men (They taught me all I knew); Their names are What and Why and When; And How and Where and Who. — Rudyard Kipling 2 A Guide to Case Analysis In most courses in strategic management, students use cases about actual companies to practice strategic analysis and to gain some experience in the tasks of crafting and implementing strategy. A case sets forth, in a factual manner, the events and organizational circumstances surrounding a particular managerial situation. It puts readers at the scene of the action and familiarizes them with all the relevant circumstances. A case on strategic management can concern a whole industry, a single organization, or some part of an organization; the organization involved can be either profit seeking or not-for-profit. The essence of the student’s role in case analysis is to diagnose and size up the situation described in the case and then to recommend appropriate action steps. Why Use Cases to Practice Strategic Management? A student of business with tact Absorbed many answers he lacked. But acquiring a job, He said with a sob, “How does one fit answer to fact?” The foregoing limerick was used some years ago by Professor Charles Gragg to characterize the plight of business students who had no exposure to cases.1 The facts are that the mere act of listening to lectures and sound advice about managing does little for anyone’s management skills and that the accumulated managerial......

...Assignment Asahi Breweries Case Analysis Anonymous Asahi Breweries (Dry Beer Implementation) Introduction Asahi Breweries, Ltd. has been in the Japanese beer market since its inception in 1949 where it originated through the post-war breakup of beer conglomerate Dai Nippon, which at the time had a 75% market share. The only other existing Japanese beer company prior to the post-war era was Kirin, holding the remaining 25% market share. Asahi is one of four main beer manufacturers along with its competitors; Kirin, Sapporo and Suntory companies. Kirin, being the oldest and largest company of beer producers has historically been the leader in production, sales, and market share at ~ 60%; primarily through its experience enabling the company to identify market trends and develop expansive distribution centers. The Asahi, Sapporo, and Suntory companies have generally remained competitive for the remaining 40% market share. Traditionally, lager beer as been the choice of Japanese beer drinkers and Kirin has capitalized on that tradition for decades by producing lager as its primary beer product. However, by the early 1980’s consumer tastes began to change and they desired more variety in beer choices. To meet the demand, the three smaller companies developed and marketed their own brands of draft beer which in turn enabled the market share for that specific product segment to even out.......
