Long-Term Management Strategy
Working together toward a future without boundaries
What We Value
In the aftermath of World War 2, Yutaka Kubota, our founder, devoted himself to the reconstruction and recovery of areas affected by the war, both in Japan and abroad.
Kubota had a strong passion for using technology to contribute to the international community, without being hemmed in by the national framework of Japan.
In order to realize the vision of the safe, secure, and prosperous society he had envisioned, he said that we must focus all of our energy on sincerity: “Tackle your problems with sincerity and the road ahead shall be clear.”
The ID&E Group (NKG) has expanded and grown significantly in the 75 years since its founding. Its spirit from that time is reflected in our Management Philosophy: Act with integrity and contribute to society through technology and engineering. This philosophy been passed down unbroken through the years and still pulses through our veins today.

3 Measures for Working together
Measures for Working together Part 1 : Reorganizing business segments
New development in three business domains
In order to meet a wide range of social needs, we will build a system with three business domains: Consulting, Urban & Spatial Development and Energy. We will create a business structure that provides a one-stop service for each domain by seamlessly integrating and coordinating across companies and regions.
Full-scale expansion into business management
By integrating and making the best use of the technologies cultivated by each of our three business domains, we will make a full-scale entry into business management, including the fields of infrastructure, urban management, energy, and data.
Measures for Working together Part 2 : Promoting autonomy & collaboration, establishing a one-stop system
Transitioning to a holding company for autonomy and collaboration, faster decision making, and coexistence of diversity
While the group companies formed in each business domain and region will be managed autonomously, we will create an organization that is united by the powerful centripetal force of the ID&E Group’s mission, technologies, and governance. We will create a group of companies with the holding company at its core, improving the profitability of each business, speeding up decision-making, enhancing risk management, and building a flexible and strong system of governance. We will be able to think globally while acting locally by implementing this in conjunction with matrix management.
Implementation of matrix management across businesses and regions
We will create a system that operates and manages our three business domains and regional businesses according to the principles of matrix management. In this way, we will face the social problems of each region and the world and propose solutions to diverse needs in a quick and optimal manner.
Measures for Working together Part 3 : Manifesting the ID&E brand and ID&E quality
Developing world-class human resources in conjunction with our technology strategy
Human resources are the most important management resource of the ID&E Group. In addition to expanding educational opportunities and programs that are closely linked to our technology strategy, we will actively acquire local personnel at our sites in the countries where we operate and promote diversity in order to develop excellent human resources.
Realizing digital transformation (DX)
We will provide optimal solutions by utilizing DX technology. We will develop promising technologies in-house and through alliances with external parties and apply them in our businesses.
