A Major Machine Maker
Company A, a major Japanese machinery maker, commissioned IoT development to three US companies (software development company, device manufacturer, and telecommunications company), but had never held a meeting in which all four companies gathered together.
Shortly after the request for development, Company A held a web conference with the three companies for the first time, and it was discovered that development process was undergone without any collaboration amongst the companies. They were even unaware of what each company's role is. As a result, it revealed that the telecommunications company would have to submit an application to the country for changing the device, and delay of the entire schedule was was inevitable.
During the meeting, in which advanced linguistic and communication skills were required, we decided to take the following actions.
① We got the situation right and made the contents to be discussed clear.
② We re-created the meeting agenda and continued the meeting, eventually clarified the respective roles among the three companies.
③ We addressed emerged potential risks (a potential crisis threatening the project).
④ After the meeting, we managed to submit the list of measures for the specific issues and the decisions to the companies concerned.
