    Abstract: This IJS Lecture consists of two parts.  Hajime Miyazaki will deliver an introductory survey of modern manufacturing and the interface of the U.S.-Japan management and human resource practices in the economic and historic perspective.  Yoshihiro Sasaki will show how his firm, based in Groveport in Ohio, implements new concepts and techniques as the new horizon opens in the GAFA world. 

    The origin of the US dominance in the modern world economy dates back to the revolutionary manufacturing technology and engineering innovations pioneered by seminal global US corporations such as Ford Motor Co., U.S. Steele, AT&T and IBM.   Toyota Motor Co. and other emerging Japanese corporations in the 1970’s then startled the industrial world with just-in-time supply chains, lean production techniques, and assembly line technology that combined the economies of scale and scope.  Now, already in the thick of post-information revolution, we have come to do business in the new world as fast and diverse as that spanned not only by GAFA but by numerous de novo firms.   Thus has become the challenge to modern manufacturing to transform its mentality and modus operandi to the world of  new automation, robotics, AI and IoT.   

    An interesting and important aspect of Japanese production systems has been the role, share and contribution of small to medium size firms in the organization of markets and industries.  Many small and medium size Japanese firms have invested overseas, and Ohio has been a prime site of their FDI’s in the U.S.   The Japanese transplants, not only large firms but also many small-to-medium size firms, have done well in their human resource and supply chain management in the U.S.   In the face of the radical shift from the analog regime to digital regime, how can small to medium size firms orchestrate their human resources and knowledge capital not only survive but successfully grow in the ever changing marketplaces?   Yoshihiro Sasaki presents how his firm, Funai Service Corporation, does it in the line of business known as “reverse logistics”.   He and his associates will illustrate how a small, seeming local, firm can reach a larger regional, national and global market by developing a workforce capable of implementing new techniques and of innovating new ideas.

    JASCO College Japanese Language Career Workshop

    Part of the JASCO Japanese Language Festival


    The Japanese Language Career Workshop helps college students to prepare for the workforce, revealing how their Japanese language skills can serve as an asset when searching for jobs. Through the workshop, we will seek to provide students with skills and knowledge that will be useful as they move forward with the job search, preparing them for events such as the Boston Career Forum.


    There will be two sessions during the Career Workshop:


    1. Preparing for Bilingual Career Forums

    The Boston Career Forum is the world’s largest Career Forum for Japanese-English bilinguals, with 230 companies having participated in 2018. In the United States, there is also the San Francisco, Los Angeles, and U.S. (New York) Career Forum, and several more around the world. 


    Learn about recommendations and tips for the Career Forums provided by DISCO International Inc., the organizers of the events! Hear from individuals who have participated in the Career Forums - learn about their experiences, and their advice for those interested in participating in these events. 


    2. HOW JAPANESE SKILLS CAN BE AN ASSET IN YOUR CAREER

    Japan is the #1 foreign investor in Ohio. According to a report provided by the Consulate General of Japan in Detroit, as of October 2017 there were 484 Japanese owned facilities in Ohio. There were 77,073 direct jobs resulted to these Japanese owned facilities, the highest total in the Midwest. But there's also a network of non-Japanese owned companies that are related to these businesses, creating a wide network of career options in which Japanese skills can be an asset. 


    Join this panel discussion as we hear from a group of professionals how Japanese language skills can be an asset in a wide range of careers. 


    Panelists will include:
