Background: * Challenges of new business development, organizational management, and the required “innovation management” *

In recent years, the Japanese economy has seen a decline in the working population and limited human resources within organizations, making it difficult for Japanese companies to create innovation on their own, even by a global standard. Against this background, efforts to develop new businesses through co-creation with outside parties, invest in startups and venture companies, and create new value through open innovation are increasing, and this is a methodology that will lead to success. ISO
56002 (International Organization for Standardization) is attracting attention. Organizations such as the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry have been making recommendations to Japanese companies since around 2015. However, the reality is that Japanese companies are hampered by various issues and are lagging behind in new business development and innovation efforts.

In the 2022 survey “Survey on organizational and human resources factors in companies’ new business development” conducted by Persol Research Institute Co., Ltd., the issues in organizational management that new business development staff feel are: Nearly 40% of
respondents said “Secure human resources to take on the role” (38.9%) and “Lack of knowledge/know-how” (38.6%). This was followed by “slow decision-making” (30.7%), “incompatibility of evaluation system” (30.5%), and “unstructured business processes” (27.6%), indicating a strong sense of management issues. . From these responses, it is clear that although initiatives for new businesses are increasing, issues remain in the creation of mechanisms and organizational structures for the initiatives themselves.
