Doing Business in Japan

      Nemawashi is a concept in Japanese culture wherein important decisions are derived from a consensus. The original meaning of Nemawashi is “it smooth around roots before planting” (Nemawashi, 04/12/2010, http://japanese.about.com/library/weekly/aa080597.htm). The Japanese use the term in their business culture to mean that there must be an agreement with all prior to making an important decision regarding the business. One advantage of this type of business structure is that it gives everyone involved with the business an opportunity to evaluate all agreements and decisions that are to made. This is similar to an agenda in US business culture in that, all information pertaining to what decision is to be made is is set before everyone and as a business they work   together   to develop   a strategy that works for all. Another advantage is that with the consent of everyone involved it will allow the company to do away with most if not all disputes. With US Corporations the decision making is usually done by head executives. They make a decision and order the decision to be followed from top to bottom. This can be considered a disadvantage, being that a lot of times the top is unaware of the consequences either positive or negative the decision that was made has on the company as a whole until something bad or good has happened within the company. A disadvantage of nemawashi can be the time it may take time for everyone to come to an agreement regarding a decision that must be made or to rectify a situation that has occurred. With corporation structure in the US once the head of company makes a decision it just importing those commands into company structure and changes can be done immediately.
