Japan is the world’s third largest economy, surpassing Germany and the UK. For a country that has secluded itself from the rest of the world after the war, Japan’s independent advancements in business and technology are truly remarkable. Professor Ulrike Schaede recognizes this and has dedicated her life studying Japan’s economy and corporate strategies. Fluent in Japanese, she is an expert on the country’s current affairs and industry dynamics.
She believes that Japanese companies are the ninja champions of Silicon Valley as they are there not to fight head on but learn and bring with them what they discover in order to optimize their own techniques back home.
Professor Ulrike’s passion also lies in championing women in business. She directs full immersion programs for female managers from Japan to enhance their global management skills.
Hear Ulrike speak at WORLDWEBFORUM 2020 about what firms could learn from the Japanese way of doing business and what companies could do to support women in the workplace.
