This chapter examines skills, focusing specifically on MOT. Five problem areas for MOT are outlined, which must be addressed with new skill sets. Identifying these is one thing; supplying them is another. After reviewing MOT education in the US, Europe, and elsewhere in Asia, its provision in Japan is discussed, identifying problems in curriculum design (hastily assembled, objectives unclear), teaching methods (too much one-way transmission), and teaching resources (too few competent teachers). On the corporate side, there is also much reliance on tacit knowledge. A common challenge is to find ways to make the key precepts for MOT explicit, so that they can be debated, developed, and diffused.

Keywords:   MOT, Japan, new skill sets, training and education, curriculum design
