CTIA Group to Establish “BUILD ” project in December 2020
to Develop New Education Service

Providing educational programs that “expand workers’ skills” to increase the value of companies and their employees. BUILD has been established to improve business performance with a focus on human resource development, and will provide comprehensive services to enhance corporate value and human resource value through education and training programs for companies and students. Recently, there have been concerns about the decline of Japan’s domestic economy due to the falling birthrate and the associated drop in the working population. Compared to other countries, Japan is not leading in terms of employable workforce which can make an impression on a global scale, or in terms of the creation of cutting-edge businesses that have a social impact. BUILD believes that Japan needs an educational system that focuses on improving productivity. Therefore, we have developed a program to increase the number of people who can make their own choices in life, and that provides both highly scalable business development support and fundamental entrepreneurial learning. With an eye on the future to further revitalize the Japanese economy, we decided to launch a business from the perspective of “education” to support people who aim for self-realization and entrepreneurs who aspire to create new businesses. BUILD’s education and training programs are not the traditional coaching type corporate training programs. They are facilitated by instructors who encourage participants to work on their own initiative and who engage in discussions, cultivating the participants’ ability to “think and work on their own” through practical training programs with a high retention rate. In this way, the participants will be able to make creative design thinking a habit, creating new answers from scratch, rather than applying customary answers tied to existing concepts. […]

SBI Holdings, Hyakushoichiba, and CTIA: Beginning demonstration experiment to launch agricultural product supply chain platform using blockchain technology

SBI Holdings, Inc., Hyakushoichiba,inc., and CTIA are starting a POC for information sharing and operational efficiency in the rice “shipping” process to build a supply chain platform for agricultural products based on blockchain/distributed ledger technology. Traditionally, in agricultural supply chains, production and shipping plans have been individually managed by each participating organization: producers, wholesalers, logistics, processers, warehousing, trade, domestic and destination retailers. Therefore, the entire supply chain will be overloaded in the event of a sudden change in demand or a pandemic, and the functionality of the supply chain will be degraded or lost. In addition, the agricultural industry is facing problems and challenges arising from many inefficient workflows and analog operations such as paperwork and faxing. The platform will record operations and transactions in the agricultural supply chain. The operational history is recorded using blockchain/distributed ledger technology to establish consistent data and secure data sharing inside and outside the organization. We aim to automate transactions and improve efficiency by sharing data throughout the supply chain and to implement traceability (information tracking) of distribution. In this POC, we will verify processes using “Traceability as a Service (TaaS)” developed by CTIA. Hyakushoichiba has prepared several verification scenarios for the receiving and shipping processes of rice from Ibaraki Prefecture. We will measure the effectiveness of business efficiency, verify the security of data sharing, and design the UI. The POC period is scheduled to take about two months.
