I would think the skill comes from managing the multi-cultural environment of these global businesses, some more so than others, internally but they all have global markets and need to read those correctly to plan and take risks with the future direction of plant and product investments.

I like to read about the persons behind the companies and how they influence their success. Many times the difficult and negative events shake things up to either improve them or remove the weak. "When the going gets tough, the tough get going". That is what happened with Renesas and Cadence. And really impressive that move of cutting paychecks to survive in the case of Juki Automation Systems. An the winner is... ?
