knowledge and wisdom

9 out of 94
(adj) very wise, knowing what to do, when to do and how much to do. In the early 1980s, the Government of India sent a team of technocrats to Japan to hunt for a collaborator for its Maruti project. Suzuki at that time was a very small player in the four-wheeler segment. However, the canny Chairman of the Suzuki Group, Osamu Suzuki, still managed to win the bid. That was because he made sure that he was present in all rounds of discussion with the Indian delegation whereas the big corporations like Toyota, Nissan and Honda had left the detailed technical presentations to their lower levels of management. This attention of Osamu Suzuki flattered the Indian team and also convinced them of the sincerity of his interest in their project.
