Abstract

Firm's relationship is one of the important issues in the field of corporate management. The authors review network literature related with the automotive industry, and focus their study on the firm's relationship in the Keiretsu of Mazda, Yokokai, in this paper. The authors collected the data of transactions, cross shareholdings, and sales from all firms in Yokokai, and calculated the centrality index based on graph theory in order to discover the rational relationship between transactions and sales m and between cross shareholdings and sales. Generally centrality index are calculated based upon degree, betweenness and closeness indicators. Certain correl atio n between transactions and sales, and between cross shareholdings and sales have been found. Implications of these findings are discussed. This paper provides a new perspective to find the determinants of the successful corporate management.
