Looking back at 2019 and 2020 in New Zealand

New Zealand has announced its lockdown in response to the Covid19.

Life of day 3: It is a chance to have the things done while lockdown! Pretty positive

Looking back to 2019

I was…


・ Lead by the emotions

 ・Believing that my way was right

・ Taking things too easy
・ Not able to keep Sub-contractors under control
・ Allowing the mistakes by not thoroughly going through details
・ Possibly not allocating the right person in the right place
・ Investing into things that would not lead to future result

7 million sales

About 20 houses

Well, I think we were able to get a number that was almost close to what we hoped to be at the beginning, but I’ve made a list of things that need to be improved, including the past 11 years.


Write a list that will come true !!

In respond to COVID19 )

All fixed costs shall be reduced

-Receive government assistance as much as possible

Internal strength )

Acknowledge the strengths and weaknesses of the company and seek understanding from employees .

・ Each employee to focus on their strength

・ Determine the role of each member not interference otherwise.
Have the skilled ones on the run , but need someone who will have all under control

Employment Agreement )

Focus on the capability

Evaluation )

1. Ability X enthusiasm X idea = result (Inamori style)

2. Thoroughness and NT can be done (does not increase work and leads to textbook creation)

3. Assess comprehensive and reproducible results,

Do not evaluate people who repeatedly make mistakes (including all the same principles, lack of preparation, lack of confirmation, lack of backup).

・ Three major elements of manager are very important when planning new project

About 20 million sales

About 40 houses

Well, these numbers are good, and it’s important that you do what you can, and the numbers will come later. Otherwise, it is not very good if the number comes first. . . .


Future investment)

-Do not overdo future investment or new initiatives that will affect the main unit.

・ When doing something like a JV, keep details clear including basics, relationships, mechanisms, exit strategies, accounting

I’ve tried a lot, but I don’t think the money is at the bottom of the table,

I like architecture, and I like to work with friends around the world . That would not be a big burden.

What I am thinking about now is the global deployment of designs that do not matter much . Even so, there is an exchange between the offices, and it is like a mechanism for mutual study from there, but if it can be done, I think that it can be used as a bridgehead and various developments can be made.

Utilizing the strength of Japan Homes’ connection, the company plans to expand into fields such as construction management, commercial expansion, and real estate sales. Finallyl, I think we will be solidifying our foothold in New Zealand, but if there is a chance, we will continue to do so in Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, etc.
