    The research question of this study is the origin of differences between companies that are focus on disaster preparedness and those that do not. This research focuses on experiential learning, which is learning from one's own actual experiences and imprinting learning, in which historical events are viewed as a factor of creating future social events. This research plan focuses on demonstrating the impact of disaster experiences during the organization's start-up period and other periods on the organization's ability to recover after disasters. The research plan will derive hypotheses based on both theories, examine the data and variables to be used, and then explain the contribution of the hypotheses if they are proven.

    With the development of the Internet, information technology has made remarkable progress in recent years. As a result, the volume of available information has also increased tremendously. Information overload occurs when an organization's information processing capacity cannot cope with the volume of information intake. Organizational learning in a state of information overload may have various effects on the organization. This study focuses on information overload in organizations, rather than in individuals, which has been the focus of most previous studies. In extant research, empirical evidence of information overload has been mainly based on questionnaire data. In this study, we examine the possibility of demonstrating organizational information overload with publicly available archival data by reviewing extant literature.

    The importance of creativity has been emphasized in many fields. This study focuses on "cypher" of street dance to examine the promotion of creativity among dancers. In order to promote creativity, positive emotions in Broaden-and-build Theory, as well as the intensity and complexity of those emotions, are considered to be important factors. We hypothesized that these emotions are related to "collective effervescence," a state of collective hyperexcitement that is often observed in a cypher. Therefore, this study aims to clarify the relationship between collective effervescence and creativity, and how to promote the creativity of the participants when collective effervescence occurs in a cypher of street dance.

    An increasing number of fluid teams are gathering members for each project and disbanding as they achieve their goals. Along with this, there are more opportunities to form a team. Psychological safety is attracting attention as one of the conditions for increasing the effectiveness of the team. However, although team members are individuals with different personalities, the relationship between psychological safety and personality combination has not been clarified. Therefore, in this study, we will examine the effect of the combination of individual personalities on the psychological safety of the team, and clarify what kind of member organization should be done to improve the psychological safety.

    The research question of this study is whether market legitimacy is responsible for the growth and decline of markets. The objective is to demonstrate the impact of market network position on market legitimacy from the macro perspective of market networks. We use 126 time-series data for 5 panels from 2006 to 2010 of 28 markets, from Japanese chemical industry companies. Multivariate analysis shows an interaction effect on the centrality of the network. This study has a practical contribution not only encouraging prosperity, but also mitigating the rate of decline can make a practical contribution to reducing the likelihood that companies will be forced to exit the market suddenly.

    The research question of this study is where the unique advantages of family firms come from. The study focuses on the impact of family members on bold management reforms during generational change in family-owned firms and their impact on firm profitability and its mechanisms. This paper uses Japanese manufacturing companies that underwent generational change between 2006 and 2016. The analysis clarifies that family firms that diversified their business after the generational change improved their profitability in the subsequent period, and that firms whose predecessors promoted diversification are less resistant to diversification. This study makes a theoretical contribution to family business research as well as a practical contribution to the business succession strategies of family businesses.

    In today's digitalized market, information is exchanged rapidly among customers, and customer experiences and reactions are spread to many people in a short period of time. However, technological evolution accelerates the competition among firms and makes it difficult to obtain customer satisfaction. In this study, we consider customer loyalty as an indicator influenced by commitment, which has dynamic characteristics. In order to clarify the dynamics of customer loyalty based on commitment, we propose a method to model the process of mutual coevolution between customers and companies while interacting with each other. The proposed model makes it possible to evaluate and analyze the relationship between market share, customer recommendation intention, customer loyalty and customer switching based on dynamically changing loyalty.

    The diffusion of QR code payment applications is an important issue in Japan, which is moving toward a cashless society. Since QR code payment applications are a type of platform business, an increase in the number of users promotes their diffusion because of the network effects. Therefore, it is essential to acquire users at an early stage and many campaigns have been carried out. However, even if the number of users increases temporarily through campaigns, some of them stop using the system soon. In this study, we discussed a model for analyzing the factors that influence the continuous intention to use QR code payment applications of users who started using them because of campaign.

    Most creative activities are influenced in some way by other works of the past. In particular, "homage," which is intentional imitation with respect, is widely used in a variety of contents regardless of genre. Digital archives have made it possible to view a wide variety of works, which has increased the opportunities for exposure to works without a common knowledge base between the creator and the viewer. By explicitly stating homage, some have criticized the process of imitating past works as plagiarism. This paper clarifies how homage influences the evaluation of a work. Through these, it will provide useful implications for suggestions based on the relationship between works.

    Recently, there has been a growing concern about an "echo chamber," a closed environment in which similar news and information circulate on social networking sites. In order to solve this problem, I defined echo chambers as a kind of confirmation bias. (Confirmation bias: the bias to respond only to information that reinforces one's own beliefs) Alone, confirmation bias can lead people to make bad choices, but with the addition of specific meta-cognition, they can reflect on their decisions and come to better conclusions. In this study, we will elucidate what meta-cognitive abilities are effective in reducing confirmation bias and how to appropriately enhance such meta-cognition.

    With the shift to remote work, the primary location of the team's activities has shifted from offline to online. The distance between team members has physically opened up, and since they no longer "share the same space" as in the offline workplace, their interactions with each other have diminished. However, in order to maintain a team and produce high results, it is necessary to prevent the decline in the richness of dialogue within the team. The purpose of this study is to identify behavioral factors that affect dialogue in online teams, targeting teams that use online communication tools and conduct their activities mainly online.

    Teasing, a form of communication that involves making fun of others, has unintentionally escalated into bullying and harassment, which has become a problem. Since teasing can lead to serious consequences, it is important to clarify under what circumstances teasing is likely to escalate. Past research on teasing has often focused on the "teasing person" and the " people who are teased", and there has been insufficient research focusing on the "audience", who is an essential part of the teasing process. In this study, we will investigate how the feedback of the audience and their presence affect the act of teasing and the reactions of the people who are teased.

    There is a growing need for open innovation, which is the creation of new value by exploring the sources of innovation through activities outside the company. Co-working spaces have been attracting attention as a place to realize this. Previous research has indicated that by using co-working spaces, users can increase their interaction with others, which is necessary for innovation. However, in reality, few users are interacting with others, and most users are primarily engaged in individual activities. Therefore, this study aims to increase interaction among users in co-working spaces, and identify factors that obstruct interaction with others.

    As imitation is now legally restricted globally, it is difficult to observe the innovation process created by original human desire. The lacquer-like toothed vertical comb, made in various forms and using different techniques, combines practicality and ornamentation, and was popular in the Jomon and Yayoi periods. This paper analyzes how imitation affects the innovation process and demonstrates that the combination of forms and technologies of the lacquer-like toothed vertical comb of the Jomon and Yayoi periods influences incremental innovation and breakthrough innovation. In order to study their form and techniques used in making them, the analysis employed the Geospatially Weighted Regression (GWR), using data from the remains of the lacquer-like toothed vertical combs excavated from the Jomon and Yayoi periods.

    Acquisition of new knowledge from external is important for firms to generate innovation. We focused on the impact of the difference in the way of acquiring external knowledge, whether the knowledge is acquired continuously from the same firms or from various firms with changing targets, on the innovation performance. Using patent data, we analyzed the impact of changes in assignees of cited patents on the number of patent citations and clarified the difference of the impact according to the growth of the technological field. It was demonstrated the changes in assignees of cited patents had a positive impact on the number of patent citations and the changes was more important when the growth rate of the technical field was low.

    In order to continuously generate innovation, two types of activities, “exploration" and “exploitation," are required. There are many studies analyzing the impact of firm's exploration and exploitation in R&D activities on its performance. However, those studies did not fully consider the relationships between knowledge elements. In this study, using patent citation data, we consider the relationship among the elements of knowledge network that a firm utilize, and propose an analytical framework to clarify the impact of exploration and exploitation on the performance.

    In this study, we focused on the secondary use of AED installation information released as open data by prefectures, and investigated how each prefecture released its AED installation information, file format and AED installation information. The results showed that 34% of the 47 prefectures disclosed information on AED installation. Ten types of file formats were found, and the lack of usage time information included in the AED installation information accounted for 14 out of 16 cases. Therefore, it can be concluded that it is difficult to accurately find AED locations that are available from the AED installation information; since AEDs are most likely to be searched for in an emergency, it is necessary to standardize open data with items such as usage time information.

    The reviews are posted on the accommodation booking websites of inns and hotels, and can be easily viewed and transmitted. The reviews are useful information for both tourists and accommodations and are utilized. The general structure of a review is that the overall rating and the item rating are expressed in numerical values, and there is a written evaluation. However, since the writer can freely transmit the review, there is often a discrepancy between the numerical and written evaluations. The reason for this may be that the factors that form the axis of judgment for the writer differ from person to person. In this study, we will examine the degree of agreement between numerical and textual evaluations of the reviews on lodging websites using text mining.

    When a customer inquires about a property that interests them from a property information site, they may be provided with deficient information. Property information sites presume that by providing only the information that makes their property listings look as attractive as possible, they will attract more customers. However, even if they succeed at this, this technique is counterproductive as the customers may be dissatisfied with the service in the long run and leave. Therefore, in this study, we hypothesized that "experience of contracted property information reduces satisfaction." We verified the hypothesis by propensity score matching on the results of an online survey .We found that dishonest information provision that prioritizes acquisition of customers may cause disadvantages to the company in the long run.

    In order to prevent consumers from leaving video subscription services, companies complicate the cancellation process, making consumers dissatisfied in the process. Although some studies explore consumers' reasons for cancellation, there is insufficient discussion on the impact of cancellation procedures on consumer satisfaction. Consequently, this study formulated the hypothesis that “the perception of ease of cancellation at the time of service contract positively influences consumers' level of satisfaction." Propensity score matching was conducted on the data obtained from responses of an online survey of users of the service. The results supported our hypothesis. This study suggests that although the focus of literature is often on how to increase satisfaction, preventing dissatisfaction among consumers should also be considered.

    The impact of videos on consumers has been demonstrated in various industries. Therefore, the same effect can be expected in the karaoke industry. However, few studies on the industry have examined the impact of videos on customer satisfaction. There are two types of background images for karaoke: normal images produced by karaoke companies and personal images using live concerts and animations. In this study, we hypothesized that consumers who use personal videos have higher satisfaction than consumers who use normal videos and verified it through propensity score matching. Our results show that the hypothesis is supported. Therefore, the karaoke industry should enhance the use of personal images.

    Consumers trust influencers on social networking sites and use their advice to decide their consumption behavior. Against this background, the scale of influencer marketing has been increasing. Conversely, companies are focusing on product promotion by setting up official accounts, but it has been found that these accounts are often ineffective. However, the differences in the effects of the two types of accounts on purchase behavior have not been sufficiently clarified under similar conditions, such as product appeal, text and photos in posts, and number of followers. We hypothesized that influencer posts would increase purchase intentions compared to official company accounts and examined this hypothesis, and the resulting advantages and disadvantages, in a randomized controlled trial in the Japanese cosmetics market.

    Even though mobile payment systems can be regarded as two-sided platform services, whose users are both of retailers and their customers, little research has been done from the retailers' perspective so far. This research, using the Modified Grounded Theory Approach (M-GTA) and Trajectory Equifinality Approach (TEA), intends to present how small retail shop owners make decisions on adoption and continuous use of a QR code-based mobile payment system by diagrams and story lines. The significance of “Iji," a Japanese word representing feelings trying to push through one's resolution, emerged from the analysis, and the concept was discussed through reviewing existing papers and features of participant retail shop owners.

    The research question of this study focuses on how corporate groups facilitate the creation and sharing of knowledge within the group while addressing the problem of knowledge homogenization. We focus on the network of multiple directors in Japanese corporate groups to demonstrate the impact of the two patterns of multiple directors within and outside the group on absorptive capacity. The data were subjected to a multivariate analysis using data from 4127 directors in 337 companies of 50 groups in the Japanese chemical industry in 2020. The results of the analysis demonstrate that absorptive capacity is facilitated by closed in-group and broader out-group relationships. This study contributes to corporate group research, network theory, and organizational learning theory.

    As digital transformation (DX), which uses technology to fundamentally change the performance and scope of a business, attracts attention. However, there are not many Japanese companies that manage data as an asset and make use of it to improve PDCA cycle of their operations. If this situation continues, there is concern that companies in Japan might be left behind in the global trend of data utilization. In this paper, we summarize the characteristics of DX and its differences from conventional IT strategies, and propose a framework for "5 Walls" that Japanese companies face when promoting DX.

    It has already been a long time since the need for digital transformation (DX) was pointed out. However, there are not many successful examples of DX. This is most likely since many of the attempts to promote DX have turned into the digitalization and renewal of information systems, while they are still in early stages. However, while this approach may improve operations, it does not lead to a change in strategy, and may not even improve the profit structure, but rather may only lead to large expenditures. To succeed in DX, it is essential to identify which business processes should be transformed by digital power. This study shows that "wholistic simulations," in particular system dynamics method, can contribute to this.
