Mid-term Management Plan of Precena

Mid-term Management Plan of Precena

Below, we will share a part of our 2 to 3 year mid-term management policy taking into account the 30-year long road map of the Precena Vision.

Priority policy one: Strengthening course type training programs

As a company having strength in providing training services to mid-career to leader class professionals, specific policies to further the training impact and enhance the retention rate of the training content is required. As a company, we started off with providing training in the area of “logical thinking” and “problem solving”. Currently, we are also able to provide training services in MBA subjects such as “corporate strategy”, “marketing”, “accounting”, as well as human skill subjects such as “leadership” and “coaching”. These subjects can be formulated into a customized course with the aim to educate next generation leaders. The course type training allows the trainees to experience first-hand the necessary thinking process they need to go through to draft management policies or formulate specific work plans to solve management issues within the training scope.

Priority policy two: Enhancing hybrid type training

Our 1.5 way e-learning system (Precena Learning System; PLS) started with the concept “travel expense is the enemy”. Although we have not actively marketed this service yet, the feedback from our customers has been remarkable and the demand to use the PLS for the input sessions while focusing the group training session on discussions has been increasing tremendously. The mix of PLS and the group training is what we call “hybrid type training”. By implementing the PLS, our clients can cut down on both large travel expenses of the trainees that need to travel long distances as well as cut down on trainees’ binding hours which can minimize the stress on the trainees that have urgent tasks to handle. While IT has drastically changed the course of our communication style, we believe that the mainstream training scheme is going to be the “hybrid type” in the very near future. Precena will enhance our services according to such vision.

Priority policy three: Acquiring global knowledge

While Japan’s industrial structure is changing from a “processing trade country” to “project investment country”, the role of Japanese overseas subsidiaries are also changing from “manufacturing station”, “sales station” to functioning as an “individual entity” to raise revenue on its own and send remittance to the company headquarters. Many a times, leader class professionals are sent to the subsidiaries abroad to manage the whole of the operation including local employees. In such an environment, we often receive inquiries for providing training in “global skill” which is a topic that must be thoroughly analyzed and systemized. In the mid-term management policy, we are planning to provide training services overseas in countries such as Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam periodically and accumulate the knowledge and know-how of “global skill” for further studies.

Priority policy four: Strengthening resources through internal education

In order to enhance the above policies, highly skilled human resources are essential. Precena has been recruiting new staff members each year. From this point, Precena will positively engage in various media to attract and pool competent professionals that can take on the mission. At the same time, skill development of staff members will also be enhanced through developing an internal education system which will go beyond “how to do work” to also include the fundamental skills, knowledge, and mindset necessary to achieve the firms policies.

Priority policy five: Reinforcing organizational strength through team building

In the past few growth phase years, in order to enhance the efficiency of our operations, every member was required to take on the sales, development, and training activities by themselves. However, now since the company has grown to a certain level, the current phase is to strengthen the organization to prepare for a further big leap in the future. In order to realize this, there will be much more focus on sharing the work in a team to improve the quality of work and systemizing such process within the organization to strengthen the overall service delivery structure of the company.
