Yoshito Hori explains how the 100 Actions project origonated.
Excerpt from the webpage:
“100 Actions” is a project to create a vision for Japan while generating nationwide policy debate. Any troubled company can recover if it accomplishes the ten things it needs to do. Japan, which is pervaded by a sense of stagnation, should be able to break free of its impasse if it accomplishes 100 goals. When the vision has been accomplished and 100 boxes for specific actions have been checked, this silent revolution will be finished. It is my aim to become personally involved in creating a Japan that holds out bright hope for the next generation.
