The Birth of Amoeba Management

Around five years after Kyocera was founded, the scale of the business began to grow rapidly and the workforce soon exceeded 300.

As the organization grew, it became impossible for Inamori to oversee all of the departments. This gave him an inspiration: "The large organization should be divided into smaller units that operate as an association of small- and medium-sized enterprises."

He therefore decided to divide the company into small operating units called "amoebas" — placing a leader in each one, and managing them all with a divisional accounting system. This was the start of Amoeba Management.
