Publications & Public Speeches

We are doing research into collaboration and innovation best practices with the objective to deliver recommendations to stakeholders in Japan (business people, companies, government, NPOs, communities, etc.). We mainly investigate intercultural management and communication in Japanese global companies and foreign capital companies. The results are used as basis to create our unique training programs.
