  Dai Senoo, President

Dear Members,
My name is Dai Senoo, new president of JASMIN, the Japan Society for Management Information. I will work hard to make our Society more attractive to members.
  First of all, let me introduce myself briefly. I am a researcher. I was born in 1969 and turned 50 in 2019 (the first year of the Reiwa Era). During my undergraduate and graduate years, I studied organizational theory at Hitotsubashi University, and then I worked as an assistant professor at the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, before moving to my current position at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Up to the present time, I have been systematically conducting research focusing on knowledge creation in organizations.
  I joined JASMIN in 2002 and served as a member of the Committee on Social connection and the General Affairs Committee. The most memorable events are the Society's transition from a voluntary organization to a general incorporated association in 2011 and the International Conference PACIS 2018 Yokohama.
  Let me ask you now, what are the challenges that JASMIN will have to cope with, and how can our Society continue to contribute to the establishment of management information studies and industrial development? The first important background we need to consider is prominently increasing of the national power of China and United States. And the second important background is the shortage of AI (artificial intelligence) engineers in Japan. In terms of problem setting, I am focusing two points. The first one is the lag in creating new markets in Japan. The second one is the aging of JASMIN members. While keeping in mind the two above backgrounds and the two problems, I lay down the following four proposals to support the strategic aims of the Society:
  1. Establish a unique presence at international conferences
  2. Collect high-quality data through industry-academia collaboration
  3. Nurture pioneering researchers in the interdisciplinary fields of humanities and science
  4. Cooperate with relevant academic societies to solicit new members
I firmly believe that concerns surrounding the proposals' feasibility and the concrete actions to be taken, as well as the priorities attached to such plans, should be addressed through dialog between all the members. I conclude this letter by saying that my main goal is to provide a setting for dialog where I can illustrate the above proposals in detail and gather opinions from all JASMIN members.

I am looking forward to your active participation.
