NAIS Special Lecture "IT Management Innovation at Matsushita Electric" Report

Participants listening to the explanation

About 70 people, including NAIS members and students of Kyoto Institute of Information Studies and Kyoto Computer Gakuin, attended the seminar and listened to a lecture on how Matsushita Electric Industrial recovered from an operating loss in 2001 to a profit of 460 billion yen in fiscal 2006 through management reforms using IT.Before the management reform, the Matsushita Group had a heavy and slow structure due to competition and the dispersion of management resources.

What was particularly interesting for us, who study IT and management, was that the top management themselves promoted IT innovation, saying "without IT innovation, there is no management reform", and achieved the management reform mentioned above.In the background, then President Nakamura's management experience at Matsushita in the U.S. must have been the basis for his development of a management control system that would be appropriate for a global company in Japan.
