イラクプロジェクトから学んだこと : その成功と困難さ What JAPEX learned from Iraq Project : Its Success and Difficulties
JAPEX was awarded to develop Garraf Oil Field in Iraq's second bidding round in 2009. The project is leaded by one of international oil companies (IOCs), with JAPEX as a non-operational partner. However, Japex has sent more than 10 employees to be seconded to this project. The writer has been sent to the project team to work with them for one and half years where he could have experience how project management should go on in order to maximize the value of the project which includes a mindset for the common target to play a very important role. Since the project management is a very important key for international success, the writer presents here 10 scenes from his everyday working situations that are different from JAPEX's attitude. Summarizing such scenes, three disciplines are extracted which a Japanese company should learn to catch up to be an international; they are 'Empowerment', 'Economy sensitive', and 'Education (including to make a mindset)'. He believes these three disciplines could improve the Japanese way of project management, and also they would become more important for the future development of all the Japanese company system.
