Our Mission: To support the growth of global human resources and organizations
Recently many Japanese companies have been accelerating their efforts to become more global in order to be in a better position to survive in the future. This has been prompted by a shrinking domestic market caused by the stagnation of the economy in the wake of the Lehman's bankruptcy and an aging population coupled with a declining birthrate. According to Economic Paper No.153 issued by Goldman Sachs, Japan will move down to 8th place in regards to its GDP by 2050. China, India, Brazil, Mexico, Russia and Indonesia will all be ranked above it. We need to recognize the significant developments and opportunities that will arise in these emerging countries, especially in the Asian ones. Japanese companies need to work on globalizing their human resources and organizations immediately to expand their businesses into these rapidly growing markets for their sustainable growth in the future.
However, economists have pointed out that Japanese companies have actually fallen behind their counterparts in Europe, the U.S. and Korea in terms of their globalization.
We think Japanese companies should take the following actions to remedy this situation and improve their long term growth potential:
- Develop better strategies for entering/operating in global markets
- Gain experience and knowledge regarding their targeted countries/regions
- Promote their business globally using improved communication skills
CICOM BRAINS strives to support Japanese companies that want to be truly global through planning and providing practical training programs. We provide programs for talent development at the management-level (Strategy, Problem Solving, Cross-cultural Awareness, Leadership Development), and for employees in HQ in Japan who are working with overseas business partners (language and business communication skills). In addition to this we offer programs that will help raise company-wide basic English abilities.
