[Table 4:] Message from the publisher
There are already many DX related books in the world. The web is overflowing with information about digital technology. In that sense, the world may have become easier for people to broadly and shallowly understand “what is digital?” That’s probably why many people feel this way.
“I already understand the meaning of the word DX and its concept.” However, this book is packed with things that we would like to convey to our readers because it is “now”. It goes beyond the “meaning and definition of DX”.
The purpose of DX is to create “white space” for people and companies. “Every company is a software company”
These are the words of Satya Nadella, who became Microsoft’s third CEO in 2014. This means that companies need to leverage software and data in many aspects of their activities, including increasing
productivity, developing new business models, reducing costs, and providing a better customer experience. It attracted attention by making managers all over the world aware of it.
How can Satya Nadella’s words and the digital paradigm shift be practically incorporated into business strategy? What kind of mindset should managers have in the new era? What kind of future can we see from the management strategies that only we Japanese can create, going beyond the framework of Westernism that has been considered acceptable up until now?
In the author’s opinion, only by starting digitalization from the “existing businesses” that Japanese companies and managers have cherished will a unique DX scenario that should be promoted in-house emerge. He says that the future lies in companies that can use the “competitiveness that transcends industry” to create “productivity margins” that arise from the level of workers in the field. Learn everything from thinking about digital strategy to execution in one book The author organizes the process of formulating a Japanese-style digital strategy and carefully explains how Japanese companies should develop digital strategies and increase their competitiveness. Furthermore, we provide concrete steps to achieve this. He updated the structure of business strategy from a “digital” perspective and also mentioned the philosophical concepts of “truth, goodness, and beauty” to deal with the difficult decision-making that managers face. We will re-examine the essence of management and explain the process of formulating a digital strategy in detail with “7 Steps to Digital Strategy.”

implementation of a “Japanese-style digital strategy.” Masu. At a time when it is said that there are “no answers” to business in the VUCA era, this book contains many practical hints for finding a path to the future. We publish this book with the hope that it will be a book that can contribute to the growth of our readers’ businesses. Contains special conversations with experts to learn about the current state of the world.

From the perspective of Japan as the planet, questions are being asked about how Japanese people can be involved in solving global issues and what they can do to solve them.

From the perspective of a “growth mindset,” I think there is still a lot of room for growth in Japan’s corporate and organizational culture.
