Can the success of Japanese business strategy be explained by the ancient Asian game of Go?

According to the author, a top-ranking Japanese executive and 3-dan Go player, it definitely can.

In chess, Go's Western counterpart, the object is to destroy your opponent's pieces, then eliminate his king - destroy your competitor.

In Go, you co-exist with your opponent and try to control the greater amount of territory - strive for greater market share.

That Go is a paradigm for decision making is almost a cliche' in Japan. For that reason it is played by politicians, bureaucrats, as well as businessmen. The membership list of Japan Go Association can almost double as a directory of the top names in the Japanese business and political world. The chairman of that association is Asada Shizuo, ex-CEO of Japan Airlines, and its president is Watanbe Kazuo, ex-CEO of Tokyo Marine and Fire Insurance.

What is Go and how is it played?

Go is an easy game to learn. The playing pieces are of one kind and the rules are few and simple. The essence of Go can be stated in just for sentences.

  • Go is played on a 19x19 lined board composed of 361 intersections.

  • The playing pieces are 181 black stones and 180 white stones, placed alternately on the intersections.

  • The object is to control more vacant intersections than your opponent.

  • By surrounding all the adjacent intersections of your opponent's stones wiht your own stones, you can capture them.

In this book, Mr. Miura explains in detail how to play and how its strategies can give you a fresh approach to the competitive world of business.
