Our world today faces a multitude of issues that impact on a global scale, including population challenges, resource and energy consumption and environmental concerns.

Surviving a Drastic Change in the Business Environment and Creating New Value with Leading-Edge, Proprietary Technologies
– Management Strategies and Philosophies for Powering "Second Foundation" –

Chairman and CEO, FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation

We find ourselves in a corporate environment that is presently undergoing a rapid transformation. When I was appointed president of FUJIFILM in the year 2000, global demand for photographic film was at its peak. This was not to last, however, with digital cameras exploding onto the world stage soon after. The market for photographic film, which at the time accounted for 60% of our company's sales and nearly 70% of our profits, shrunk to a fraction of these figures in just a few years.
With our principle business in tatters and staring at an impending crisis, the company turned to a platform of "Second Foundation" to survive. Undertaking a major shift in business structure, we took full advantage of the leading-edge, proprietary technologies FUJIFILM had developed over the years, and channeled management resources to growth businesses and new ventures.
In what I hope will be an informative lecture, I will look at how the company transformed during this period, what conclusions the management team drew from their experiences and the direction in which FUJIFILM intends to head going forward.
