Innovation philosophy:

In many Japanese companies, the normal way of induction for employees is to "teach you everything you need to know", and to follow standard processes. Because of this, engineering is often carried out in an environment that prescribes structure, order and adhering to standard methods. While this conducive to standard and repeatable processes, it can stifle innovation.

Earth Japan uses unconventional thinking applied to engineering, rather than just conventional engineering thinking, to generate innovation success. Often, organizational structures and methods that characterize good engineering, conflict with the ability to innovate.

Intricate knowledge of engineering & scientific principles is necessary, but can sometimes confine solutions thinking to a focus that is too narrow. Widening the focus and understanding "the big picture" is necessary to "think outside of the box", and to successfully innovate.
