    Research outline:

    New technological innovations, notably AI and DX, are rapidly changing society and the way people work. Most workers are required to constantly upgrade their skills. In view of this dynamics, this project has two goals: (1) to identify the specific challenges Japanese companies are facing, as well as the ways they are dealing with these challenges, by conducting field research and surveys, and (2) based on this analysis, to make recommendations on how managerial flexibility and work-place resilience at Japanese companies can be enhanced.
