Quote from: sdogThe advantage for the BMW's steering lies perhaps that german engineers won't give up on getting those answers. They will just have to form a very good and well thought of suggestion before they can start the discussion. Then all of the other engineers will find hundreds of flaws, but they also will try to find a way to iron them out. This won't happen all of the time, so quite often not so bad ideas are dropped until something better comes up.
Quote from: sdogthis is much stronger in Japan, and i'm quite convinced brainstorming is absolutely impossible there. They still build extremely good industrial products, and were technological leaders for quite a while. So it really does not have such a large influence, or rather there are other methods to get reliable innovation.

The Japanese saw the value of his ideas and started putting them into practice. Meanwhile most American manufacturers ignored him.
