Working with and leading people is one of the major concepts of a person who wants to be a leader. A good leader must acknowledge what an organization really needs at a specific time. The role of the leader in an organization is very crucial that the leader can lead the entire organization to success or failure. Herein, there is a case scenario of Kaisha Corporation - a Japan-based company seeks to expand its business in Danang City, Vietnam. However, there are so many problems as the company is still unfamiliar with the the business environment of the country and encounters difficulties in terms of culture, which is obviously indicated in a form of human resource.

There are also clarifications on why these positions or departments are relevant to Kaisha Corporation in this such new situation:

- One CEO, who is in charge of managing the entire joint venture company in Da Nang.
