PDCA日記 Vol. 1,585事前の根回しこそが一番大事












1. ネガティブな意識を捨てる:根回しに陰でコソコソ動いてだれかを陥れるようなダーティなイメージを持っていませんか?ドラマや映画の見過ぎです。


2. キーパーソンを見つける:キーパーソンとは部長や常務といった上位の意思決定者に影響力を持つ人のことです。社内の人間観察をしましょう。


3. 根回しの順番を考える:根回しの相手の順番を間違えると、うまくいかないばかりかマイナスの評価をされてしまうこともあります。」(引用終わり)



P.S. 根回しに対してネガティブな意識を持っている人に時折遭遇しますが、「根回し=報連相の一環」と考えられば動きやすくなるかもしれません。


そう、根回しは報連相の一環であり、これを行うことで仕事はスムーズに進むのですよ :-)。


< Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「根回し」 = 「prior negotiation」


今回出てきた「根回し」の英訳は、「prior negotiation」になります。


「根回しこそが一番大事」を英語で表現する場合、「Prior negotiations are the most important」とすればよいですね :-)。




PDCA (plan-do-check-action) Diary Vol. 1,585 "Prior negotiations are the most important"

When I was a banker, I never participated in drinking parties, etc., but I was more careful than anyone else at prior negotiations.


This was the case when I was in the United States and when I was working in Japan.


Talking to the people involved in advance allowed me to proceed smoothly.


The material to be introduced today "How to Use the Art of War (Japanese only)" has a catchphrase of "Getting Strategic Thinking Techniques of the Art of War" and the following phrases were impressive.


"<How to be good at negotiation>


1. Discard your negative consciousness: Do you have a dirty image that can sneak around in the shadows of a mess and fall into someone? You are watching dramas and movies too much.


2. Find a key person: A key person is someone who has an influence on a senior decision maker, such as a director or a managing director. Let's observe people in the company.


3. Think about the order of the negotiations: If you make a mistake in the order of the negotiations, you will not only fail, but you may also get a negative evaluation." (Unquote)
