Outline of the medium-term business plan "Break 2018"
Our mission is to "continue creating software that gives people time" under the policy of making people happy by the power of software. After 10 years, we aim for our software to be widely used not only in Japan but in countries of the world. For next three years, we have formulated a new medium-term management plan, Break 2018. We have a thought of “Shu-Ha-Ri(Protect-Break-Leave)” and we strongly focus on “Break” for to accomplish the plan.
At Break 2018, we will work on the following five priority measures.
Note: Shu-Ha-Ri（守破離） is a Japanese martial art concept which describes the stages of learning to mastery. It is sometimes applied to other disciplines, such as company management. Each character implies stages in improvement of practical arts.
Shu(守)＝Follow the rules Ha(破)＝Break the rules Ri(離)＝Transcendent with own rules
