Timeline for Kyocera in the Mobile Communications Business
From its humble beginnings in 1959 in Kyoto, Japan to today – with more than 78,000 employees in 308 companies in 40 countries – Kyocera is unified across generations and geographies by a core set of guiding values. Established by Kyocera's founder, Dr. Kazuo Inamori, these values are captured in the Kyocera Philosophy.
At the core of the Kyocera Philosophy is a belief that decisions should always be made through reason and based on the idea of "What is the right thing to do as a human being?" We believe in the fundamental ethical and moral values of the natural goodness of human beings. The most basic principles of humankind say "Don't be greedy," "Don't cheat people," "Don't lie," and "Be honest." For individuals and for businesses, trouble comes when decisions are based not on what is right, but what is convenient.
Contained in the Kyocera Philosophy are Dr. Inamori's "12 Management Principles" for business. These are the tactical guidelines for those at all levels making decisions on behalf of Kyocera. Of the 12 principles, it is no accident that only four are specific to business operations, while the other eight focus entirely on the character and integrity of the individual. For 54 years, good people making the "right" decisions have led Kyocera to strong performance and even stronger reputation.
