I got my Ph.D. at Keio University. I started my carrier at Fuji Xerox, and worked for the Corporate Research Lab. I was researching for CSCW (Computer Supported Cooperative Work) at the Lab. After that, I moved to the Corporate Strategy Office to adopt my research hypothesis to real business cases. I was engaged to create a corporate vision “from Document to Knowledge,” based on the ideas of Knowledge Management. In 2000, I launched a new service business group, called KDI (Knowledge Dynamics Initiative), and lead the group as a senior manager for 12 years.
I launched a research project about Social Innovation at GLOCOM. In 2012, based on the concept, I started a new company, named Future Sessions, to drive social innovation across the boarder among private, public, and social sectors.
