|On the basis of my 40 years experience of Fujitsu HR, I established my office,
Kentaro office, at Tokyo in 2016.
From 1996 to 1998 I participated in IMPM (International Master Program for
Managers) which was organized by Prof. Henry Mintzberg of McGill University.
I have been promoting Coaching Ourselves which is a short version of IMPM
created by Prof. Mintzberg in Japan for more than 10 years.
At this point more than 2000 managers in Japan have completed this program.
In Fujitsu more than 500 managers.
I am promoting the two initiatives which are peer learning systems in Fujitsu
I started Fujitsu Marketing In-house Business School with Yokohama Business
School which belongs to Yokohama National Universtiy. This In-house Business
School has been continuing for 6 years so far.
Another initiative is Fujitsu Social Science Laboratory In-house MOT School
which I designed. It started in this April with Tokyo University of Science.
My other activities are as follows;
I am in charge of the Japan Module of IMPM which will be held in 2019.
I started to prepare for it as a co-director.
From 2016 I have been an associated research scholar of Hitotsubashi
Institute of Economic Research. I am conducting a joint research with
professors of Hitotsubashi University in terms of productivity improvement of
