Amoeba Management Brings Sustainable Corporate Growth
Kazuo Inamori Management Philosophy Guangzhou Report Meeting (September 25, 2011)

A leader needs a Philosophy

To resolve conflict between Amoebas, a firm “philosophy” becomes necessary to rise above our differences and make decisions in a higher dimension, while still pursuing profit for our own Amoebas. When such a universal philosophy is shared throughout the enterprise, Amoeba leaders will be better able to abandon negative attitudes like “all is well if I am well.” Only then will they be able to base decisions on positive thinking expressed as determination to do what is needed for the good of the company overall.

Further, people with the capacity for leadership do, by nature, lean strongly toward assertive self-interest. Because this places them at higher risk of engaging in negative behavior, they need to control their own actions with a universal philosophy. In other words, they need to acquire a higher-dimension philosophy that helps them restrain their selfish behavior so Amoeba Management can function correctly.

If Amoeba Management based on such a philosophy permeates the Kyocera Group, our growth is assured.
