Masterclass by Isao Yoshino
Different than any other conference you’ve attended, the 1st Global Convention on Organizational Excellence will feature:
Invention is the Mother of Necessity”: Creating the Services of the Future
Unlike the past, when businesses could dictate to customers, the internet and its myriad of choices has now put customers in control. And it doesn’t matter what sector your company is in, customers expect the same level of service they receive from industry giants, from you. This means, in order to flourish, thrive and grow for the future, your company needs to practice “invention is the mother of necessity” thinking and teach people how to create the effective, efficient and personal, human services that will connect your customers and your company forever.
“Good Imitation to Great Innovation”
It is said that imitation is the mother of invention.
Many of distinguished businesses have their start in imitation.
Are you aware that the Toyota production system was born from a clue that came from the supermarket?.
In this lecture, we will explore the logic that underscores the origins of creativity, thinking deeply about the methods and necessary awareness to bring forth innovation from imitation.
“Lean Leadership and Hoshin Kanri”
As many people know, basic concept of Hoshin Kanri came from the US techniques of MBO (Management by Objectives) and the Deming Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle. While "individual initiatives" are the focus of MBO, "managers' targets" are aligned with the corporate goals in Hoshin Kanri in Japan.

In this mini-workshop keynote, participants will learn:
It is said that imitation is the mother of invention.
Many of distinguished businesses have their start in imitation. Are you aware that many of the big companies of today such as Seven Eleven, Apple, Toyota, Wallmart, Nintendo and Mc Donalds were born imitating clues from other innovative businesses but that did not manage to sustain themselves.
In ancient times, copying an example in its entirety was honored as fundamental to learning. Imitation was thought an indispensable activity in calling forth originality and creativity, and thus, selecting the object of imitation was encouraged to be carried out carefully.
The same can be said in the world of business. Even for businesses that appear to have an inimitable system, upon investigation, their systems to a greater or lesser extent are built on imitation. Systems that are inimitable but were built on imitation; this is the paradox of imitation.
If this is so, then we should heighten our abilities of imitation by obtaining an approach and acquire a deeper understanding that surpasses the initial model. In this lecture, we will explore the logic that underscores the origins of creativity, thinking deeply about the methods and necessary awareness to bring forth innovation from imitation.

As many people know, basic concept of Hoshin Kanri came from the US techniques of MBO (Management by Objectives) and the Deming Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle. While "individual initiatives" are the focus of MBO, "managers' targets" are aligned with the corporate goals in Hoshin Kanri in Japan. Good communication between bosses and subordinates is also highly valued in Japan. In Japan, developing your subordinates is considered to be one of the major roles of managers. Toyota is one of the corporations in Japan that put the highest priority on people development. It is embodied in our slogan: "Machines don't make cars, people make cars."
