I’m currently exploring the history of India’s economic development in terms of "human resources". It is said that because of the exportation of human resources to other countries, starting mainly with America, India has been able to become one of the global leaders in the IT industry in an astonishing short amount of time. This was due to a relaxation of regulations and economic liberalization in India from the 90’s. Using India as a model I have been researching how developing countries in Africa could follow a similar path. I think even a country like Japan should begin to give more importance to sectors such as information and human resources in order to keep up its position as a world leader. After graduation I want to continue pursuing my desire to have an impact on the IT world in terms of human resources.
In my seminar I’m researching issues such as what kind of services do companies employ to attract customers and new ideas for keeping customers satisfied. Besides just reading marketing materials and articles I’ve also visited resort hotels in Fukuoka to see firsthand how companies form coherent strategies to differentiate themselves from the local competition. For example, instead of just pushing the resort’s own restaurants on the guests they would also introduce local popular restaurants or have local goods on sale within the hotel. It made me realize that with all the competition nowadays, companies really have to think about meeting the needs of guests more and more and not just about making a profit.
