    10. Case Study:

    Akio Morita Chairman of the Sony Corporation writes the Sony Story in the book

    mace in Japan (Fonta Paperbacks, 1967). It all started with the nuclear invasion on

    Hiroshima and Nagasaki which brought Japan on her knees. At the same time: it

    generated a reaction of defiance and rebelliousness. The genesis of Sony and other

    operations of Japan can be traced back to this feeling getting even.

    Morila had his leanings towards electronics during student days. He barely scraped

    through a science degree, but self-taught himself electronics. During the Second

    World War, he served as a naval technical officer.

    It was in 1946 that the Tokyo Tushin Kogyo Kabushiki Kaisha (the Tokyo Tele

    communications Engg. Corporation) was founded in a dilapidated, charred

    warravaged department store building by Masaru Ibuka and Morita along with 18

    other people. They produced short-wave radio adapters to enhance the MW sets.

    Ibuka and Marita did lot of running around. For some equipments they developed,

    they won an order from the Japan Broadcasting Corporation. Ibuka changed upon an

    American tape recorder, and liked this product. He convinced others for the need to

    diversity. Morita later added the magnetic tape to the product mix, since recorders

    sold without tapes meant giving competitors and opportunity to enter the readymade

    tape market.

    Market development was the most crucial exercise for them, since the product a

    recorder was innovative. The buyer must accept its potential value. Its market was

    to be created.

    The company then entered a virgin field of transistors, and developed its miniature

    product form. It revolutionized the electronics industry.

    The company in 1953 was rechristened as Totsuko abbreviation of its former name,

    Even this name was a bit tedious. Mortia and his friends then evolved Sony based

    on Sonny American slang extensively used in Japan in those days for bright and

    cute kids.

    The Sony Corporation became a multimillion dollar enterprise operating across the

    glove. Morita then launched the Walkman project, a treamendous market success

    which belied the estimationed about its viability by his colleagues.

    Sony does not believe in wastages it is considered sacrilegious. A Japanese

    worker is hired first and then suitably placed. Morita advises paternalistic

    foremanship. Japanese corporation and government treat each other as partners in a

    venture of nation building. All these operations spend a lot on R & D. In Japan,

    bigness of size, operations, turnover is not a crime.
