We are using a combination of a small number of people + software + servers and robots.
We are promoting a new era of company management.
I hope to share some of the process in this section.

Why can't we create a good "strategy"?

What kind of vision or strategy do you have for the future? I am sometimes at a loss when I am asked, "What vision or strategy do you have for the future?

This is because although I have a direction that I would like to see happen, I don't put it together in a presentation document or have a presentation meeting.

There are many directions, such as "approach education first so that it can be useful around the middle of the 21st century," "help workers feel fulfilled in their work," and "give hope to the people involved.

There is nothing more detailed than that, so there is nothing to talk about.

In general, you need KPIs, strategies, tactics, missions, and visions, but I've come this far thinking that I don't need them.

Some may argue that since the organization isn't that big, it's okay.

However, I feel that it is a little different because even if an organization is small, it will struggle and when things go wrong, they will go wrong.

I found a sentence that fits such a bewilderment, so I'll quote it here.

The body in mathematics
The Mathematical Body
https://www.shinchosha.co.jp/book/339651/

When humans design artifacts, they decide in advance what is a resource and what is noise.

In the example of this circuit, each and every logic block is a resource for solving a problem, but electromagnetic leakage and flux would be considered as noise and would be eliminated as much as possible.

But that is only the designer's point of view.

In the process of bottom-up evolution, where there are no designers, anything that can be used is used without regard to its use.

As a result, resources are scattered throughout the body and environment, blurring the distinction between them and noise.

To what extent is the subject solving the problem, and from what point is the environment, they mingle without clarity.
It's a mess.

There is another question that I often get asked and it bothers me.

"Why did you aim for diversity in terms of age and nationality? "Why did you aim for diversity in terms of age and nationality?

The answer is "I didn't set out to do that," but I'm afraid you'll be disappointed, so I'll give you a slightly more dressed-up answer.

This is the result of recruiting people who are comfortable participating in Shakujii, not as designed, but as a result of adaptation.

Do you watch the strategy you set up at a certain point become invalid over time, do you eliminate noise to justify your strategy, or is it a strategy that keeps changing in small increments?

I can't seem to create a good "strategy" because it's just too big for me to handle on my own, and there is a wide variety of information flowing all over the place.
