Understanding firm longevity has always been at the forefront of research for both academics and practitioners alike. Most of the world’s oldest firms are found within Japan raising the question as to why this occurs.
This webinar, hence, aims to present such a phenomenon through critically analysing a variety of different academic and professional literature on the phenomenon of Japanese firm longevity. This is then followed by a comparative analysis on the reasons as to why certain Western firms have also shown their ability to survive for a long period of time, before finally analysing the common factors of failure and how firms can implement strategies to avoid said failures
The webinar targets EU firms and employees at the managerial level.
