Toshiba scandal offers lessons in avoiding fraud

TOKYO -- When it comes to demanding more from employees, how much is too much?

     It is a question that may not have a hard and fast answer, but Shigenobu Nagamori, chairman and president of motor maker Nidec, has his own rule. "To make a company grow, management often has to ask employees for 130%. But when you ask for 200%, that's too much," he told The Nikkei when asked about the accounting scandal at Toshiba.
