Takatomo Itoi
Critical and Analytical Skills, Innovation
Innovation and growth are inextricably linked. Driving innovation is one thing for a start-up company, however it poses entirely different challenges for large, established corporations. In Business Transformation through Innovation, we will identify and understand the underlying causes of transformation failure and get to the heart of what matters most in building a breakthrough business.
Takuro Ueno
Global/Asia/Japan
"Throughout history, in conflict and peace, humans have faced, dealt with, and learned often from different countries, cultures, and peoples. Added to that, we now have an increasing number of organizations operating beyond national borders, helped in part by new technologies and improvements in existing ones. The world is becoming more complicated and even more complex than ever."
Timothy Connor
Creation
Don't demand, understand. This is a key concept; always try to understand the reasoning, the situation, and the motivations of any other persona in class or in cases. Others (colleagues, clients, customers) may not act according to your expectations.

Tomoya Nakamura
Global/Asia/Japan, Management Philosophy, Marketing and Strategy, Specialization

I hope to introduce them to you and to connect them with management knowledge. Let's explore the dynamism and influence that management can have to our society.

Toshimasa Mori
Marketing and Strategy, Organizational Behavior and HRM
"Why are a few service organizations better in and year out at what they do than their competitors? Outstanding service organizations are managed differently from their merely good competitors. Missions are stated differently. Managers act differently. Actions are based on totally different assumptions about the way success is achieved. Heskett J, et al. at HBS have developed and tested with quantifiable measures of a set of these relationships that they have come to call the service profit chain. Acquiring this concept through case discussion definitely help you mobilize your organization. The more you express your thoughts, the deeper you understand the concept."
Trond Varlid
Organizational Behavior and HRM
Various skills and knowledge are required to be successful in business. Arguably one of the most difficult skills to master, however, is managing and dealing with people. Are leaders born or made? Why do people and organizations tend to resist change? How can you bring about change in your team or organization when it is needed? How do you empower and motivate your team to be successful and achieve their best performance? These are some of the key themes we will cover in our Organizational Behavior and Leadership class—and I look forward to your active participation. See you in class!

Yoshitaka Saeki
Accounting and Finance
Finance can be one of the most challenging courses in that it requires extensive quantitative analyses and an accurate output of numbers. At the same time, it is rewarding because finance is an essential tool for managers who want to create values and measure them. Effective managers need to be able to make decisions and communicate in terms of numbers. In my class, I try to bring in real-world settings through vigorous class discussions. The more you are committed, the more you’ll find your learning experiences rewarding.
