Mogic thinks

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.

No expectations, no anticipation.

Expected value is a probability term, and the definition from Wiki is "a weighted average of all values of a random variable with probability weights.

To put it crudely, it is a prediction that after a few times, you will converge on this answer.

We often use it because running a company is close to making arrangements for the future.

In recent years, Mogic has become more organized and authority has been decentralized, so that rank-and-file members handle more things related to money and resources.

It is easy to calculate the expected value of costs that have been incurred in the past or that are likely to be used by other companies.

However, the most difficult thing to do is to figure out how to invest in something that you have never spent money on before and have never heard of elsewhere.

There is no way to calculate the expected value because there is no historical data.

There is a similar statement in the rest of the wiki definition.

The expected value is meaningful when similar events occur relatively evenly. The concept of expected value is meaningful when similar events occur relatively evenly, and the concept of expected value does not fit in cases where events with very extreme values are very rare. For example, in the case of "insurance" or "lottery," the expected value is negative because the chance of obtaining a large insurance payout or winning a lottery ticket is very rare, but it is not appropriate to judge that it is meaningless to purchase insurance or buy a lottery ticket.

That's when "anticipation" makes its appearance.

The criteria is to see who will be excited about this investment and how they will talk about it in a cheerful and happy way.

If it's too vague, it's hard to use, so I make it a little more formulaic, but I still end up seeing the faces of the people I talk to.

It's strange because it's the ones where expectations are unpredictable that everyone seems to enjoy.


Separation of capital and management

One theme that must be considered in any stock company is the separation of capital and management.

I say "someday" because even if the person who provided the capital continues to run the business, it will need to be liquidated when he or she retires.

You can start a company with your own money (capital and management are the same) and let someone else take over as president once it gets going, or you can go public and have an unspecified number of people own shares.

When capital and management are integrated, it is easy to get an idea of the people who work there.

This is because the president is not the only one somewhere far away, but usually works with the employees.

However, if the shareholders are unspecified, it does not matter who is working and how they are working.

From someone else's point of view, transparency, numbers and governance will be the number one priority, so the atmosphere will probably be different than it was when we were integrated.

This is natural because it changes the logic that binds the organization together.

This seems to be the norm in a corporation, but I wondered what it would be like to replace it with a family.

Normally, all the money earned by the father and mother is the capital of the family, and how it is spent is the management.

However, what happens if more than half of the family's capital is invested by an unspecified number of people?

When we spend money, we feel that it is difficult to use it in some way.

If you spend too much and the returns are too low, they may dismiss you from the role of father or mother and send someone else in.

Goals are set every three months, and failure to reach them may result in an explanation and possibly removal from the family.

When I think about it in that way, I realize that "shifting rights (roles) according to capital ratios" is an invention that we don't think about in our daily lives.


Bringing Nonfiction to Reality

To find new meanings in what we take for granted as commonplace.

To add your own annotations to the side of a text written by someone else.

This is what I have been doing to manage my company.

The education provided at the company should be useful business skills, the career should be a steady staircase, the company should be evaluated based on individualism, the company's performance should grow in a straight line, the decision making should be top-down, the service should be one-pointed, the company should focus on speed and pivot if it makes a mistake, and the company should copy other companies ahead of it. If you make a mistake, pivot.

If I feel even a little bewildered by these common theories, I have unraveled them one by one.

Rather than saying, "This idea is better than that idea," I thought it would be quicker to take action, so I tried it first and sent it out, and that's how Mogic became what it is today.

Recently, an editing method that not only sends out information but also tries to solve problems is called solutions journalism, and I quote below.

New Generation Editor's File

Steve Hindy, a former journalist and co-founder of the Brooklyn Brewery, said he left the news agency and founded the company because he found more joy in matching hop and wheat ratios than in writing articles.

Media talent = content creators who become characters in their own stories.

Such an era has arrived. This way of thinking is similar to "solutions journalism," which has been attracting attention in recent years.

It is a way of imagining good non-fiction and making it real.

Editing, so to speak, is a term that describes the creative direction ability to create a story.

The job is to think about how the content will be read, what effect it will have, and even what kind of story it will create.
I'll be there.

As someone else said, the meaning can be generated in unlimited quantities, so it looks like we won't have any trouble for the time being.


Let's get it over with.

Mogic's fiscal year ended at the end of September, so a new term started this week.

Even if a lot of things have happened in the previous years since the beginning of the company, we are all ready to start anew.

You can have a party with your company members and eat sweets, or organize an interesting event.

It was just Halloween, so we decorated the office everywhere and flew drones to take pictures.

The start is always a step forward.
