Executive Development Mission 2017 – Japan – May 21-27

Friends of Honsha, 

Usually at this time before our next scheduled Japan Executive Development Mission we send an email announcing that we have a few seats remaining if anyone wants to attend.  Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your position, this time we will announce that the October EDM is sold out.  We will accept people to the wait-list and will use this list to fill seats in the May 2017 EDM.  The majority of the seats in the October EDM were filled with people from the May 2016 wait list. 

We are continuing to increase the quality of the EDM by listening to our participants and incorporating the feedback into the schedule and the visits we make.  This has contributed to the increase in demand to the point that the seats sell out very quickly.  Some have asked if we can do more than 2 EDM’s during the year, we have chosen not to increase the frequency of the EDM’s beyond twice per year due to the burden this may place on some of the companies we visit that don’t normally accept visitors.  We consider these companies to be high quality places to visit and add to the uniqueness of the Honsha EDM experience. 

If you have any questions about the EDM please take a look at the website http://www.honsha.org/jpexecutivemission/ .  Also, please feel free to contact us to speak with someone directly about the experience. 

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you on the May 2017 Japan EDM.
