“New” Project Management in the Era or Open Innovation

Skylight America’s CEO, Tetsuo Oyama, will speak as a speaker at this event.

This seminar is part of the seminar of the Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Northern California (JCCNC), but general public attendees can also participate.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, face-to-face communication was not possible, and it is no exaggeration to say that most of the communication has moved online. Under such circumstances, various events went online at JCCNC, but it was not easy to make the transition even though it was necessary.

JCCNC’s first online New Year’s party, which was held on January 16, this year, was planned and operated by an executive committee composed of volunteer members of a so-called “amateur” group that did the event planning and execution. How did we drive the project for about a year and create a new online LIVE event? From a business perspective. “Company mixed”, “volunteer activity”, “complete online”, etc. have something similar to keywords such as “open innovation” and “gigwork”, and we would like to provide hints for online utilization. On the day, we will explain in detail the backend story of the event.
