Transcript of Japan Business

Japanese Business Culture By: James, Chaad & Bryan Japanese Business Etiquette: Men should wear dark suits (navy or black) with a white shirt and tie. Wearing all black is avoided because it is funeral attire. Men are also not aloud to have beards or to shave their heads. Business women should wear either pants or a skirt with a blouse. They also wear the same colors as men. Their hair should be tied back and jewellery should be avoided, as well as high healed shoes. Business cards are a must have. When presenting them to a potential client do not throw or slide them since this is seen as rude. Instead one should present their business card directly to the client. When concerning meetings, it is polite to schedule them at least 1-2 hours before and if you know that you are going to be late, call at least an hour in advance. One should always arrive ten minuets before a meeting and come prepared. Negotiation Styles: Business workers in Japan tend to value the needs and goals of the group ahead of the needs and goals of themselves. When doing business one should always be calm and polite, and if someone makes a mistake, it is not proper to criticize or humiliate them in public. To speed up the negation process business workers often interact with their clients socially. This helps with negotiation and it also strengthens relationships. The business workers speak little in negotiation. When they do in a negotiation, it is almost always in the form of questions. This is to get the other party to reveal information. This approach is also why it so hard to negotiate with them; it is nearly impossible to get them to disclose their interests or motivations.Which is why decisions are rarely made in the first meeting. Kissing or hugging should be avoided. This can be very embarrassing to the Japanese recipient. One should also never blow their nose in public; sniffling and snorting is allowed , but not blowing your nose. Seating at dinners and in meetings is very important in Japan. The seating protocol depends on seniority, relationship, the location of the door, and objects in the room. Communication: Communication is a very important part of Japanese business; it's what gets the job done. Communication between Japanese business workers and foreign workers can be difficult since most Japanese people don't speak English. The English of foreign workers can not be understood or worse, misunderstood so translators are always available. Japanese Car Companies: Business workers build up long term relationships with their business partners as a way of showing loyalty and trust. Map of Japan:
