Event Description:
"Give me 100 global leaders by 2013."

Such edicts are now regularly pronounced by Japanese presidents as they struggle to reinvent their companies to survive in the 21st Century. Late to realize that their once highly-differentiated products have become cheap commodities, presidents are rushing to join the "global" party. Japanese companies are sending legions of their rank-and-file employees into a plethora of training programs to become "global." Meanwhile, individuals are attempting to leap ahead of their peers by enrolling in "global" MBA programs, "global" executive education courses, and the like.

However, a useful definition of "global" seems to escape everyone. Global leader, global company, global economy, globalization.... Can a person or a company become global, and manage the issues of a global company, in the way that corporations are attempting?

In this forum, three corporate leaders and audience attempt to filter the cacophony of the global bandwagon by delving rigorously into "How can Japanese companies become global?"
