マネジメントグループは社会基盤の施設や組織をいかに管理・運営していくかという課題に取り組んでいます。インフラの整備に関わる規制や事業執行の仕組みをあるべき姿にし、分野間の古い垣根を取り払って未来のインフラビジネスの担い手を育てることが私たちの使命です。組織設計、人的資源管理、知識活用、意思決定などマネジメントの諸活動を自ら実践して考える練習場を提供します。

Management research is about exploring ways to achieve the goals of organizations or communities of people. At the Management Group, we concern ourselves with the management of infrastructure, public services and institutions. Our lab is a space to think about organizational design, human resource management, knowledge management, or decision-making. On our search for appropriate infrastructure development and maintenance systems, we tear down old walls between traditional academic disciplines and train the future leaders of global infrastructure projects. In addition to the development, operation and maintenance of infrastructure facilities, we study the management of diverse elements within social systems, ranging across issues of natural resources, environmental issues, technology, institutions, and international relations. Broadly speaking, our work can be classified into three research fields:

  1. Management of construction projects
  2. Management in international development
  3. Management and social systems
