Case Study: </p><p> Akio Morita Chairman of the Sony Corporation writes the Sony Story in the book </p><p>mace in Japan (Fonta Paperbacks, 1967). It all started with the nuclear invasion on </p><p>Hiroshima and Nagasaki which brought Japan on her knees. At the same time: it </p><p>generated a reaction of defiance and rebelliousness. The genesis of Sony and other </p><p>operations of Japan can be traced back to this feeling getting even. </p><p> Morila had his leanings towards electronics during student days. He barely scraped </p><p>through a science degree, but self-taught himself electronics. During the Second </p><p>World War, he served as a naval technical officer. </p><p> It was in 1946 that the Tokyo Tushin Kogyo Kabushiki Kaisha (the Tokyo Tele </p><p>communications Engg. Corporation) was founded in a dilapidated, charred </p><p>warravaged department store building by Masaru Ibuka and Morita along with 18 </p><p>other people. They produced short-wave radio adapters to enhance the MW sets. </p><p>Ibuka and Marita did lot of running around. For some equipments they developed, </p><p>they won an order from the Japan Broadcasting Corporation. Ibuka changed upon an </p><p>American tape recorder, and liked this product. He convinced others for the need to </p><p>diversity. Morita later added the magnetic tape to the product mix, since recorders </p><p>sold without tapes meant giving competitors and opportunity to enter the readymade </p><p>tape market. </p><p> Market development was the most crucial exercise for them, since the product a </p><p>recorder was innovative. The buyer must accept its potential value. Its market was </p><p>to be created. </p><p> The company then entered a virgin field of transistors, and developed its miniature </p><p>product form. It revolutionized the electronics industry. </p><p> The company in 1953 was rechristened as Totsuko abbreviation of its former name, </p><p>Even this name was a bit tedious. Mortia and his friends then evolved Sony based </p><p>on Sonny American slang extensively used in Japan in those days for bright and </p><p>cute kids. </p><p> The Sony Corporation became a multimillion dollar enterprise operating across the </p><p>glove. Morita then launched the Walkman project, a treamendous market success </p><p>which belied the estimationed about its viability by his colleagues. </p><p> Sony does not believe in wastages it is considered sacrilegious. A Japanese </p><p>worker is hired first and then suitably placed. Morita advises paternalistic </p><p>foremanship. Japanese corporation and government treat each other as partners in a </p><p>venture of nation building. All these operations spend a lot on R &amp; D. In Japan, </p><p>bigness of size, operations, turnover is not a crime. </p><p>Contd3 </p></li><li><p>QP CODE 57301 Page No..3 </p><p>We in Indian must give forth our own Moritas. </p><p>Poser: </p><p> What managerial lessons do you draw from the Sony phenomenon? </p><p>SECTION D </p><p>(Compulsory for New Scheme Students) </p><p>Answer the following question, which carries FIVE marks: 1 x 5 = 05 Marks </p><p>11. a) Enumerate then problems in control process. </p><p> OR </p><p>b) Write a note on Planning premises. </p><p>* * * * * * * </p></li><li><p>QP CODE 57302 Page No..1 </p><p>First Semester M.B.A Degree Examinations </p><p>December 2015/January 2016 </p><p>(Directorate of Distance Education) </p><p>(New Scheme/ Old Scheme) </p><p>(Before 2012 Batch) </p><p>PAPER MBA DP 120: ACCOUNTING FOR MANAGERS </p><p>Time: 3hrs.] [Max.
