Born in a small farming village in rural Wakayama, Konosuke Matsushita was forced to leave school at the age of nine for an apprenticeship in Osaka because of his family’s poverty. At twenty-three, he set up his own business and began working on his own inventions. Relentlessly pursuing innovation in products and management, that tiny workshop grew into the global corporation we know today as Panasonic.
Known as the “God of Management” in Japan, Matsushita's business books have sold more than 18 million copies in Japan alone.
The Million-Dollar Knack for Successful Management summarizes Matsushita’s timeless essentials of the knack of management gleaned from more than sixty years of business experience. As you will learn from Matsushita, “Grasping the knack of management is worth a million dollars.”
