True Innovation Program Flow

At zenschool, we will transform the participating employees into innovative human resources through the above flow. Rather than just giving simple knowledge to corporate training, we ask participants to change their consciousness and announce specific services and product prototypes at the final presentation, and then those who wish to go to crowdfunding. I was taking on the challenge of raising funds and marketing to create a flow to create new businesses.

Effect on "creativity"


zenschool is conducting joint research with specialized research institutes related to "happiness studies" * 1. As a result of a questionnaire survey of students, it has been found that "happiness" and "creativity" are greatly improved before and after taking zenschool. This research is expected to be published in a specialized academic journal in 2017.

* 1 "Happiness" is a relatively new academic field, "Positive Psychology", "Well Being", an initiative to think about happiness from the standpoint of social welfare, and medicine that reveals the functions of substances in the brain and the brain itself. .. A new discipline that integrates these is called "happiness."

Research papers related to this course and zenschool are published in IPSJ, "Open Service Innovation vol7.No.2" (published in April 2016), so please have a look if you are interested.

Paper "On the possibility of" micro-manufacturing ", an in-house product development method for small and medium-sized manufacturers utilizing crowdfunding"
Koji Miki, Shigeru Utsunomiya

Outline of the treatise: Conventionally, it was thought that "product development of mass-produced hardware is difficult to establish with only small-scale management resources." On the contrary,  We will show examples of successful product development by a small and medium-sized enterprise with limited management resources, using a product development method called "micro-manufacturing" that efficiently develops its own products in a short time using crowdfunding. At the same time, it shows the possibility that crowdfunding can be widely used not only for financing but also for market development and marketing. Finally, we give some suggestions for the future that product development methods can also be applied to product development in large companies.
