On June 19-21, JICA and the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS) jointly held a three-day workshop entitled “Workshop for Leadership and Management in Asian Countries” in collaboration with Hitotsubashi University at GRIPS campus in Tokyo.


The workshop was organized as part of a joint research project between JICA-RI and GRIPS, “Case study and modeling of organizational management in Southeast Asia” that started in March this year. The purpose of the research is that governmental and academic researchers in Southeast Asia will gain a deeper understanding of the organization management theory that Professor Emeritus Ikujiro Nonaka of Hitotsubashi University has propounded for developing the management model suited for the region.


More than twenty participants from governmental and academic organizations who specialize in public administration from five countries—Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam—attended the workshop.


Through the workshop, the participants are expected to agree on the framework of a joint research project on leadership and organizational management of each country. They   received lectures and discussed about knowledge management and public administration, as well as the content and methodologies of their research. In light of outcomes from the workshop, a case study on the organizational management in each country is to be carried out.
