University of California Press

This chapter presents a detailed analysis of the relationship between the Japanese firm's environment and its internal organization. It discusses analyses by managers to reduce or eliminate the role of independent shareholders in the firm's governance structure, and suggests that investor influence on management is largely a result of their simultaneous roles as bankers and trading partners. The chapter presents a case study of the transformation of corporate governance in a Japanese firm.

Keywords:   Japanese firm, internal organization, independent shareholders, governance structure, trading partners, corporate governance
