One World: Leadership and Culture when Building a Global Company

Since Yoshiaki Fujimori joined LIXIL Group Corporation in 2011 as CEO, the company has undertaken acquisitions of several leading home product manufacturers, such as American Standard and Grohe, with the intent of becoming the global leader in the building materials and housing equipment industry. With these cross-border mergers and acquisitions as critical points in LIXIL’s expansion, several questions beg to be answered: What is the meaning of “true globalization?” How does a Japanese company build the necessary structures to support such globalization? And how is diversity promoted within the corporate culture? Mr. Fujimori and renowned human resources expert Stephen Patscot of Spencer Stuart discuss their perspectives on the “software” aspects of globalization and their respective philosophies on what it takes to be an effective leader in a post-merger setting, highlighting the challenges they have faced and some of their successes.
