"The Early Stage Competition in the Japanese Online Securities Industry:

Research Based on Case Studies of Leading Companies"

pp. 53-72 (778KB)

              In the early stages of the online securities industry in Japan,

combined factors of expectation based on the precedent in United States

created a “dominant perception” that the customer base of the industry

would dramatically increase. Based on this perception, companies other than

Matsui Securities continued to participate in endless and morass price

competitions. These companies shared sufficient knowledge on Matsui

Securities’ strategies as well as Matsui Securities’ performance. However,

at least for two years, they underestimated Matsui Securities as “a niche

company” and did not seek to its strategies. Thus, Matsui Securities were

able to enjoy overwhelming performance and establish a solid position in the

initial stages of the industry without being imitated by others.

"A Note on New Product Project Selection Model:

Empirical Analysis in Japanese Chemical Industry"

pp. 73-84 (401KB)


              By focusing our attention on one particular scoring method which

is used to evaluate R&D projects, this paper seeks to specify empirically

the factors that discriminate successful projects from failed projects in

the Japanese chemical industry. Our statistical analysis revealed that when

projects are evaluated in this industry, three factors, marketability,

technology, and synergistic potential, tend to be valued by practitioners

approximately in a 3:2:1 ratio. Although the project evaluations in this

research were conducted ex-post, the findings suggest that the results may

also be applicable in the project selection stage. Built on our findings,

we propose a Continuous Improvement Scoring Method (CISM) that contains

continuous improvement cycles, which links ex-ante project selection with

ex-post project evaluation.
