Planning and implementation of mid-term plan

IIJ steers management by formulating, executing, and managing the mid-term plan in a three- or five-year cycle, in light of market conditions, technological trends, customer demand, and the competitive situation. During the mid-term planning processes, IIJ determines a business portfolio based on the business environment, competitor trends, management resources, and the cost of capital etc., and then formulates each business strategy, technology development roadmap, and investment plan accordingly. The progress of the mid-term plan is managed by each department using KPIs and other indicators. The progresses in each field and changes in the market environment are reported to the meeting of the Board of Directors and the management meeting etc. where they are discussed and reviewed in order to achieve the plan.
