Introduction

Improving the success ratio of innovation

JIN represents Japan in the technical committee of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for innovation management systems ( IMS) as the exclusive national institution.  
In this capacity, JIN actively participates in developing international standards for innovation management, domestic opinion gathering, and international negotiations.

As the scheme owner of the ISO 56000 series in Japan, JIN has accumulated many successful cases in "IMS design and implementation" and "Individual Acceleration Support" with executives, middle and junior managers, by making full use of his rich experience in supporting the acceleration of innovation in large corporations and its worldwide network.

Our Solutions

Innovation 100 Committee

Who is responsible for creating innovation in companies?

Who is responsible for creating innovation in companies?

In this period of great change, Japanese top managers must understand and identify the transformations of our time, show the direction that their company should take with courage and determination, and take initiative. In 2015, we formed the "Innovation 100 Committee" with its first-term members consisting of 17 CEOs from major Japanese companies who shared awareness of this issue and are taking pioneering efforts regarding innovation. With the high aspiration of "making Japan an Innovation Nation," a total of 46 companies have participated by the 4th term, and we have continued to disseminate information about our activities.
The committee is managed by JIN, METI, and WiL.
