Chapter 22. Late Career Diversity


  • Makoto Ohtsu
  • Atsuko Nagano


This chapter deals with the late career stages of our alumni covering the eight-year period beginning in 1991 and ending in 1998. It corresponds to the age range of the early to late fifties of our alumni. This period is somewhat shorter than the one suggested by Schein (1978)—age forty until retirement. This is because, under the Japanese length-of-service system, managers' late career stages begin rather late, a reflection of the fact that managers' career progress continues, on average, through their forties and into their early fifties, and that during this period managers' work involvement remains very high.
