Solving a country’s problem through SNS "Crowd Sourcing"

Last week, I was named to the national strategy commission by Prime Minister Noda of Japan. The commission was empaneled to focus on existing problems in Japan and to find practical solutions by the year 2050. My area of focus is on economic prosperity. I assume they are expecting my background in entrepreneurship, innovation and global perspective to be incorporated.

Therefore, I wanted to be entrepreneurial in framing the problem, innovative in receiving ideas and solutions, and global in implementing them. To do this, I am using my vast social network to “crowd source” from everyone about some problem issues they perceive as well as practical ideas/solutions for them.

Looking forward to hearing from you all!

  1. I happened to lead to your blog after googling Harvard Asia Quartery to which I also contributed an article on healthcare in South Korea recently, and read your comments on policy advising. Good luck for your advisory role and I am sure you will provide an extensive input to the country.
