After the turn of the century, the social, economic, and
political aspects of the world are changing in an unprecedented
rate. These changes are so rapid that what used to take a decade
now only takes a few years. Today, corporations are strongly
urged to identify changes in its environment, swiftly draw
blueprint for transformation and implement actions to enhance
their corporate values.|
For the past 20 years, Media Gain
has grown alongside the transformation of Japanese economy, by
tackling hands-on with various cases such as business recovery,
M&A, and risk management.
While providing counsel to each
of the projects we supported, we continued to ask ourselves
“what lies in the core of the adaptability to business
transformation?” By sorting out issues and problems in cases
such as Japanese corporations’ overseas expansion and foreign
corporations’ entry into Japanese market, we have come to
identify a keyword.
It is the lack of focus on
“INTELLIGENCE” in both thinking and actions. Because of the lack
of focus on intelligence, Japanese corporations, in comparison
with foreign corporations, often tend to miss opportunities and
In too many occasions, Japanese corporations
act without objective view of business intelligence. This
happens not only in overseas market, but also in domestic market
and within the organization as well.
With the improvement
of systems, governance and compliance, corporations have made
progress in the past decade. However, the lack of understanding
and possible misunderstanding of “INTELLIGENCE” have in many
cases led corporations to freeze their actions. As a result,
more and more corporations in various industries suffer from
missed opportunities to recover trust, or to regenerate itself.
In this fluid environment, a corporation’s business domains
are bound to constantly change. We will continue to focus our
efforts in providing advisory and support services in “RISK
MANAGEMENT” and “BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE” that are prerequisite in
adapting to this fluid environment.
