PHP Management Seminars in Japan and Overseas

PHP Management Seminars, using audiovisual materials, introduce Konosuke Matsushita's concept of rational humanistic management and the views of other prominent business leaders. The seminars are limited to a small number of participants, and emphasis is put not so much on "teaching" management know-how as on stimulating the participants to think about and discuss among themselves the role and responsibility of a corporation and management as they see it.

PHP Management Seminars were first offered in 1977, to help foster high-caliber managers in Japan, and since then, over 230,000 senior and junior executives and staff employees from more than 10,000 corporations and other organizations across the country have participated in the program.

In 1981, PHP overseas seminar launched, introducing the Konosuke Matsushita's way of thinking and management. Seminars were done not only in many Asian countries like Singapore, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, but Russia, UK, Germany, France and the USA.

PHP Friendship Clubs

In response to requests from the readers of PHP monthly magazine for a forum where they could exchange ideas on personal development and social problems, PHP Friendship Club Association was established in January 1976. Today there are more than 160 Friendship Clubs throughout Japan and overseas.
