On 23 November 2015, Tokai University European Center (TUEC) hosted a lecture on economic reform and team dynamics in Japan. The invited speaker was Associate Professor Lisbeth Clausen of Copenhagen Business School. The theme of the talk was team dynamics and diversity management, and the effects of economic and political reforms on these. Assoc. Prof. Lisbeth Clausen discussed this theme based on her recent study of multinational corporations in Japan; a study which was published in book form as Team Dynamics and Diversity: Japanese Corporate Experiences in the spring of 2015. The lecture discussed Tokyo based corporations as providing a useful platform for studying the Japanese government’s recent initiatives of including international talent and not least the female workforce, ‘womenomics’, as assets in the Japanese drive for economic progress. A one-year study of teams in multinationals in Tokyo provides examples about collaboration between traditionally Japanese ways and international corporations that bring in new inspiration and act as catalysts of change. The participating corporations in the study were Bang & Olufsen, Ecco, Coloplast, Novo Nordisk, Microsoft, Sony and Huawei.
