Executive Summary Honda Motor Company has established itself as one of the world’s leading producers of automobiles, as well as the largest manufacturer of motorcycles. At the beginning of their three year mid-term business plan, Honda set some goals that allowed them to “make 20 million customers happy,” and this challenge allowed them to grow in all business segments. They achieved virtually all of their goals.

Honda also has its own financing division to assist their customers in purchasing vehicles and other power products.

Company Plans:

Company Plans Honda’s primary market is in Japan, where its head office and CEO are located. Therefore, that is the area where they centralize their growth. Consumer spending has increased in Japan, and because of this, they expect the competition in the Japanese market to intensify. They feel that there are some specific areas in need of improvement that are essential to their success: -Research and Development -Production Efficiency -Sales Efficiency -Product Quality -Safety Technologies -The Environment -Continuing to Increase Society’s Trust in and Understanding Toward Honda They feel that, through improving in these seven areas, they will achieve the Honda visions, which consist of “Value Creation,” “Globalization,” and “Commitment to the Future.”
