Since joining J-Bund, he has been engaged in practical activities such as improvement of site management, work process improvement, IE training, and training on logical thinking in fields including food, retail, and drugs and cosmetics. With spoken Japanese, Chinese, and English ability, he has been a powerful human resource for the company.

 

He places emphasis on the awareness of the original point. Recognizing and defining the true problem is the first step toward solving a problem. Whenever a client consults with him, he does not just listen to what the client says but tries to present his own hypothesis or interpretation after thoroughly considering the problem, ask appropriate questions, clarify what the client is thinking, and define the true problem.

 

As a consultant, he places emphasis on practice rather than theory, viewpoints rather than methods, and ways of thinking rather than ways of solving. His ultimate goal is to convert what he thinks into an achievement for his client.
