Highlights of the report
With its business philosophy of “Spreading Shikigaku and Maximizing People’s Potential”, SHIKIGAKU Co., Ltd. (TSE Mothers: 7049) has focused on conducting activities aimed at spreading his theory of Shikigaku since its founding. Established in march 2015, the company has since applied its Shikigaku theory internally and was listed on the Mothers section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange in just four years. The Shikigaku theory was invented by Kenji fukutomi, currently the second largest shareholder of the Company, and was subsequently systematized and extended by Koudai Ando, President and Representative Director of the Company. When the Company was established, it started with only 500,000 JPY in capital, including 250,000 JPY each of President Ando and Kenji fukutomi, and has since grown at an astonishing rate.
The existing activities of the company include its main activity of organizational consultancy; the Sports Entertainment business, which consists primarily of a B2 League basketball team that the Company has acquired to expand its business area; and the venture capital fund business. In addition, the company has started practical support fund business and contract development business as new ventures. In its Organization Consulting activity, the Company plans to further increase its consultant workforce from 20 to 25 consultants. Ultimately, the Company aims to prove the effectiveness of its Shikigaku theory by increasing the size of this staff to 100 consultants. Meanwhile, the company is striving to further increase the number of contracted businesses and sales figures associated with its platform services and increase the sales generated by SHIKIGAKU Career while striving to maintain sales by consultant of JPY4 million. The Company also strives to prove the usefulness of its Shikigaku theory in all of its other areas of business by developing for-profit business operations in these areas. For example, the Company began to expand its fund-related business by proving that issuers supported by the Company generated higher results when implementing the Company’s Shikigaku theory on a large scale.
The unique logic of the Shikigaku system involves a structure of consciousness, and the system itself represents patterns of behavioral logic that are set in motion from the moment a person or organization becomes aware of a problem until the moment when this problem is being addressed. By minimizing misunderstandings and misperceptions that arise within organizations, the system reduces wasted time while communicating at the lowest possible level, improves employee focus and ultimately increases the productivity of the organization. Basically, the system focuses on leadership training and is characterized by its suitability for all business operations carried out by organizations. Due to the Company’s revenue model, profits increase with the growth in the number of consultants providing services. The growth of the Company is based on the revenue generated by multiplying the sales per consultant by the total size of the consultant staff. Meanwhile, the profits from the Company’s platform services, which generate recurring revenue on a monthly basis by providing ongoing organizational management support based on the Company’s Shikigaku theory, increase with the associated number of companies under contract. The company sets the bar very high for its consultants and only 1.6% of applicants have received job offers in the past year. SHIKIGAKU managed to shorten his required consultant training period to 78 days, which is 30 days less than the previous year.
The company is currently receiving a large number of inquiries regarding its Shikigaku theory. Indeed, the company acquires around 70% of its customers through referrals, which can be taken as proof of the high level of trust that customers place in the Shikigaku system. As part of its medium-term management plan, the Company aims to firmly position its Shikigaku system as an essential tool for business and organizational management and to meet the conditions for listing on the main market of the Tokyo Stock Exchange. by achieving sufficient market capitalization, generating adequate business results, and putting in place a satisfactory governance system. Through this same plan, the Company aims to generate net sales of JPY6.3 billion, operating result of JPY1.5 billion, and a 25% ROE in FY02 / 24.
Based on the current average amount of sales it generates per customer, the Company estimates the growth potential in the domestic market at JPY1.1 trillion. Its current share only comprises around 0.06% of the 3.58 million companies in the Japan, which leaves a significant room for growth. The company’s Shikigaku system can be implemented in any industry and can also be applied to non-corporate organizations. The company’s Shikigaku system can be used in a very wide range of circumstances, as it can be implemented in any industry and can be applied to non-commercial organizations as well. In recent years, relatively low labor productivity has become an urgent problem in Japan (which ranks 26th out of 37 OECD countries), and the Company expects its Shikigaku system to gain attention as a method of improving labor productivity in Japan over the medium to long term.
