PDCA日記 Vol. 597「大企業が足りなさすぎる?」】




国連を英語で表現すると、「United Nations(UN)」になります。


国連のお役所的な体質を揶揄して、ニューヨークでは、「UN = United Nothing(何もできない塊)」というジョークを飛ばす人もいました。

P.S. 「UN = United Nothing(何もできない塊)」と似た英語ジョークとして、北大西洋条約機構NATO)絡みのものがあります。


NATO(英語では『ネイトー』と発音)」の正式名称は、「North Atlantic Treaty Organization」になります。



そのため、英語で「NATO」と言えば、「No Action, Talk Only(口先だけで何もしない)」という意味にもなります。




< Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「生産性」=「productivity」>




「生み出した付加価値が低くなるので、生産性も低くならざるを得ない」を英語にする場合、「Since the added value created will be low, productivity will have to be low.」とすればよいですね😊。  




PDCA (plan-do-check-action) Diary Vol. 597 "Not enough big companies?"】


The material introduced today "Junctions of the United Nations (Japanese only)" casts an exciting proposition "Whether Japan will shine again by reforming small and medium-sized enterprises or become a vassal state of China", and the following phrases were impressive in the part "Not enough big companies in Japan".



"To be more precise, the problem of Japan is that it is not fostering large and mid-sized companies that can play an active role as global corporations, in spite of the world's third largest economy.


The reason why small companies are not productive in the first place is that employees salaries are low.


Even if you do the same quality and amount of work as someone who works for a large company, they will receive lower wages.


Since the added value created will be low, productivity will have to be low as well.


Anyone can understand why salaries are low, but in case of a small company, the burden of fixed costs such as real estate, management compensation, and capital investment becomes heavy.


In addition to that, the division of labor is not possible and the unit of workers, so it is not possible to fully bring out the individual abilities.


Of course, it may not be motivating because the salary is low.


In other words, it is a very simple story that a country with a high proportion of small-scale workers is less productive, and a country with a low proportion of small-scale workers is also more productive." (Unquote)
