As the most influential German business management researcher Eugen Schmalenbach already stated a 100 years ago, research should not lose track to real life issues. I consider it as important; therefore, to actively outreach activities to foreign firms in Japan. As I am native German, I support German firms in Japan, especially at Kansai area.
