Thanks to Satomi, our tech team at HBSO Community Challenge Tokyo Chapter 2021 (https://community.myhbx.org/) has very good chemistry to stimulate each other. Just one day before the re-stating the emergency in Tokyo area, we had a great wrap up in-person at Roppongi Hills.
From June, I am attending a Disruptive Strategy online course at Harvard Business School (HBS). (https://online.hbs.edu/courses/disruptive-strategy/?subject=Strategy)
Why? Now on you? Well Well Well,,
Pablo Picasso once said
Good artists copy,
Great artists steal.
Disruptive Strategy is famous framework by Professor Clayton (Clay) Christensen. I met him once before, but sadly he has moved to God’s place last year, after two times fight against cancer. I love to learn how HBS conduct 5 weeks course with Clay’s theory and eager to steal the essence.
HBS said that still ragged from the similar one at Stanford (Stanford LEAD https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCoCB5EGyak), but contents and…
Came back home from two weeks stay in the Big Island, I found this bud came out from my happiness tree (dracaena). Yes, dracaena (we call “happiness tree” in Japan, Hong Kong and at least in Hawaii) may or may not have a chance to bloom once in 14 years or 15 years. This is much miracle than 17 years cicada boom now in the south side of the US. Literarily this was the second time in my life.
As discussed, at the previous article at (https://masahironakagawa-272.medium.com/kona-wind-part-1-6fb529ed7309), I felt a huge gap between what I have seen at the Big island and my country, and moreover I became very healthy. Not only physically, I felt very healthy at every moment during my stay in Mauna Lani.
That area has plenty of native goats all over the place. Famous for their fecundity, their family circle are increasing year and year. Maybe no fatal natural enemy give them a heaven.
This year we see more than 11 troop of goats out there, and no one escape from the players. Hence, we…
One week has passed from landing at Haneda airport, Still can not find a word on which I have watched and experienced in Kona, the Big island in Hawaii in early this month of May, then please allow me to set two session to explore with the facts which I found at this Part 1, and trying to figure out some action plans at the Part 2 later.
Gee, I thought Japan is ragged by this pandemic, but the reality is far bigger than I expected.
How I should do, What I should do for this? Usually I can summarize…
Who can imagine that this situation of “state of emergency” fatigue would have continued until now? Japan may be the last OECD country to recover from this pandemic. I thought this session may be ended by March and may consider the next thesis, but the world in Japan has not been improved with no significant learning from this world disaster for a year; Hence I will continue this thesis with a much-upgraded scale.
It was autumn 2019, when we deepened our dialogue with Kisaki, still in her sophomore year. Kisaki has great potential, but she thinks of herself as good…
This week is at Kanta’s adventure.
He took my class for the first time just 6 years ago, when he joined the college. Even he was in a different department, I opened to the other students for the opportunity to touch a fun of learning business and management. Kanta happened to find a class between his other important class with my class, he just took it without any other reasons.
But his interest in the business has surged week by week.
As one of the first presenters of the last presentation, Kanta had full confidence and completed his 5 minutes…
This week was a commencement week. On Monday, I attended the ceremony in Kyoto and surrounded by many smiles which were brighter than the sunshine. These big smiles remind me a story about past leaders who were also like sunshine.
It was 1989, when Mr. Noboru Goto, Chairman of Tokyu Group passed away. …
My SHUKATSU (job-hunting for undergraduates) Café through Zoom goes on, more than once a week. Getting into the further stage of the interview, the request from the students comes up to more detail on strategy and tactics.
At the application, most of the HR office of the corporate use AI for picking up remarkable students, the same as keywords pick-up at Google search, and I am teaching how picky words they should put into their applications.
After this process, the crucial part is an interview.
As most of my old friends know; I am a bit old-fashioned.
A long time ago, when I listened to “Stardust” by Nat “King” Cole (https://youtu.be/0Uenuie_4ac), my father came down to the living room with a smile to say “Masahiro, you like this song, that should be with my generation”.
My parents love this city and particularly my father loves to walk down to Hyde Park every morning during their stay at a small flat. …
