Japanese love small things

■Japanese love small things. Japanese love details. The quality of Japanese products and business procedures is realized by this love for details. If the top management stresses the big picture or the high-level direction too much, Japanese field workers or staff level employees will lose the motivation for loving details. This leads to the declining quality of products and business procedures. Probably this happens in many Japanese companies these days. Japanese management wrongly takes the way of big-picture-centrism instead of love for details.
