Without knowing engineering, business cannot be managed. MOT (Management of Technology) is obviously a key fundamental knowledge for CEO. Through introducing “Nishikawa MOT program” organized by Ernest Upbringing Foundation, the author wishes to attract broad recognition on MOT and how important it is to master MOT.
Through the program, the author joined several CEOs and reconfirmed the fact that CEOs define “engineering” as critical issue for management. A source of core competence comes from engineering capability. Without correct understanding of proprietary technology within the company, management cannot create new values.
MOT should be systematic and practical for who confronts management at the site. The author is reporting the summary of “Nishikawa MOT program” which was delivered with such aim.
