During May and June 2017, Odgers Berndtson interviewed almost 40 tech-sector leaders in Asia Pacific and Japan. All represented multinationals with headquarters in either the US or Europe.

The objective was to get an up-to-date view of the region, from the region’s most senior executives.

In this report, we present their insights on:

  • the economic outlook for the region
  • the impact of government in each market
  • ease of doing business in each market
  • characteristics of successful companies across the region
  • current talent and leadership challenges

Their comments were specific and current, and yield a depth of insight that is unique. All spoke from years of experience and deep familiarity with their markets, to provide a comprehensive picture of the region for tech MNCs considering the next move in Asia Pacific and Japan.
