Sony Japan needs radical restructuring, may happen after CES


George R.R. Martin constructed a world in which a massive ice wall protected the majority of civilization from the evils of the northern borderlands. In the third book of his incomplete series, the reader gets a glimpse of the possibility of the Wall failing and see an unlikely hero's rise.

Anytime I read anything about the economy, I visualize it as the Wall – a seemingly impenetrable thing that can weaken and fail if not defended or treated properly. According to a report by The Times, Sony Japan will be going through a restructuring as a result of the Wall’s widening cracks. In other words, the economy sucks and Sony needs to change.

Some analysts are warning that the “expected” restructuring will be radical and focused on major divisions and their management. One analyst is saying that Sony needs to push their content earning as opposed to their manufacturing. Sony president Sir Howard Stringer is being called upon to be Sony’s Jon Snow and usher in the changes forcibly or face the possibility of widening achievement gaps and billion dollar losses.

The majority of this is being reported as fact, as Sony is expected to announce a restructuring after CES. We’ll just have to wait and see.
