Enterprise Turnaround strategy is all about the art of the comeback. How does a firm that has suffered defeats or losses, especially a japanese firm, come back and survive? Japanese companies are often faced with situations where they must adapt or face severe repercussions. It is the aftermath of these situations that students will learn from in order to hone their own skills as managers of often turbulent businesses. Professor Osamu Ueda will lead discussion starting with the well known international case of IBM's corporate turnaround in session one and finish on the difficult task of reformatting a traditional Japanese company in Mitsui Securities. Students will face down the broad concepts of turnaround management while delving into the real essence of corporate management in international and Japanese firms.
