Bosch–the global technology and services company–has a history spanning more than 100 years, and over 360 group companies spread across 60 countries. It is among the world leaders in global patents, achieving both profitability and innovation, which is encapsulated in its company motto, “Invented for Life.” How does it continue this successful run of innovation? What challenges does its still face? What can we learn from them?
Throughout its history Bosch has churned out one technological innovation after another, including fuel injection, anti-lock brake system (ABS), and Electronic Skid Control, significantly contributing to the advancement of the world auto industry.

How does this Bosch retain its innovative culture despite its large size and dominant market share? Here to explain Bosch’s experiences in innovation management, strategy, and implementation is Mr. Herbert Hemming, the President of Bosch Corporation, Japan.
