Abstract

This research, using financial performance data of Japanese electronics companies over a 30-year period, focuses on the measure of knowledge intensity from the perspective of "long-term incremental brand power". It examines how excellent companies have maintained a constant high growth ratio even during the lost decade of the 1990s in Japan. R&D productivity, measured by the brand-to-operational assets ratio, was identified as the source of such power, supported by a fairly strong correlation between them. This paper also contends that such power is the most reasonable metrics for comparing brand excellence even among companies of various sizes and industries.
