J. Demeron Skouson is a proven leader with solid expertise in Business Development, Marketing, Operations, and Engineering Management both in large Fortune 200 and small business environments. A strong achiever who started up new Technical Centers, Operations facilities, and established overseas Applications groups. Strong background in Japanese business culture, fluent in the Japanese language, and practical expertise in the powerful knowledge based development area.
While working for American companies developing products for Japanese automakers, I ran into numerous situations of Japanese expectations being so high it was painfully difficult for my American counterparts to remotely come close to meeting them. This was not because the Japanese were smarter, but that they did things differently and more effectively.
Overcoming the differences became a daily challenge and we struggled to find training material that helped. So I began keeping notes which over a five year time period became sufficent to compile into this intersting and most helpful educational book.
