Support for Group Business Management/Group Restructuring

The strategy promotion and formulation of group company structure by individual business divisions has resulted in weak integration between corporate divisions of headquarters and inefficient group management in the company. NRI provides support for formulating the design of functional arrangement and organizational structure appropriate for realization of strategy, ways of cooperation amongst group, as well as a grand design of group management and restructuring based on a new or reviewed/reformulated group management strategy. Additionally, we establish a grand design coordinated and agreed upon with the group companies, and support projects involving the group companies (PMO support) as well as practical procedures, while coordinating with external experts to reach a detailed design. We provide support until the restructuring is executed smoothly.

Support for Holding Company’s Structural Transition/Review

There are more and more companies considering a transition to a holding company structure leading to further growth, with strategies such as separation of management and execution layer, expansion of business lines (including M&A) and creation of new business lines. Additionally, among the companies that transitioned to the structure of a holding company at the time of lifting of the ban on holding companies, some companies did not undertake adequate structural design. The number of companies considering a review of the structure and mechanism of holding companies are also increasing. Based on the growth strategy of the group, NRI provides support for the transition to a holding company structure as a grand design by formulating functions, organizations, schemes, group governance, etc. Additionally, we provide total support for transition to a holding company structure based on the grand design including detailed design of organization, systems, business, support for practical procedures including legal, accounting, tax, etc. as well as PMO support for the implementation of the entire project. For a review of the holding company structure, we also support in reviewing the system of group restructuring and corporate management.

Support for Business Integration

There has been a surge in M&A activity recently in order to compete with large global firms and to operate efficiently in the Japanese market, which is facing the challenges of declining birth rate and ageing population. In the case of organizational integration and mergers, there are instances where the expected synergy is either not achieved or disrupted altogether if an analysis is not done while communicating closely with the management of the company. NRI summarizes and reviews the issues in the company's policies related to conflicts of interest, and supports the formulation of integrated policies and master plans to form the foundation of business integration. Additionally, we provide comprehensive support to achieve business integration including PMO support for overall project management based on the master plan, and support for examining individual subcommittees established based on the integration policy.

Support for Group Business Management/Governance

When reviewing the mid-long term management strategy and restructuring of operations/information systems, the current corporate management and governance mechanisms may become incompatible with the actual conditions. Corporate management and governance should be optimized in accordance with the changes in the group management policies. In order to make group management effective, NRI reviews the management unit and management core as per the group strategy and supports the design of PDCA management process/rules, KPI definitions, review of investment and withdrawal rules. Additionally, we also support in developing the platform for determining responsibility/authority, structure of meetings, evaluating performance, and restructuring of information systems necessary to carry out group management.

Support for Business Reforms and Development of Shared Services

Many companies are not able to produce adequate results post the implementation of business reforms and end up rebounding in a few years. It is believed that in order to carry out group management, it is necessary to develop a system that integrates the group’s business and its information system infrastructure to enable efficient and effective operations. NRI conducts fact-based research and analysis through business surveys that focus on work items as well as activities, and supports the creation of a balanced business reform plan. Also, shared services centers are being re-examined as foundation of group management to not just improve efficiency but also improve the quality of operations, strengthen governance and share knowledge. NRI provides support for concrete design as well as implementation of structure improvement including transfer of business and personnel from the group companies.
