Research on Strategy of innovation and management
The current trend in the business environment in regards to globalization is to create organizations which are flat in design. This also holds true with regard to enterprises engaged in innovation.
To bring about continuous innovation, we need to take into account more than just the technological development strategy of an enterprise. Companies must take a more holistic approach to creating an environment to forster innovation. To do this, enterprises need to incorporate their mission and vision into an integrated strategy and of management that influences organizational systems and process.
In my research, based on the results of the study of current innovation in various fields, I am attempting to clarify an integrated framework of strategy management to foster innovation in enterprises. In particular, I am investigating the framework of strategy management necessary to achieve "United wisdom" that becomes the source for continuous innovation.

Interface of Work and Life
My research interests are centered around the issues of work-life interface for working individuals. In particular, I am interested in how the balance between work and personal life affects employed men and women’s motivation towards work, happiness, and health, including psychological well-being, as well as how it impacts the quality of life for their “significant others.” At present, I am working on a research project that explores how an interaction between work-life balance and formal skill development in an organization facilitates creative capacity for R&D engineers.
