There is a wide gap between the needs of customers (society) and manufacturers (vendors) who develop software and hardware to meet their needs. Whether developing an order system, selling standard package software, planning some kind of project, or proceeding with the design of logo catch copy, it is important to always be aware of the market, interpersonal, and technical gaps and to have the ability to advance the project in a better direction with advanced discussion skills, logical thinking skills, and presentation skills.

In my lectures, I begin by understanding the gaps that always exist between individuals, learn how to deal with them and solve various market and technical gaps by referring to specific examples, and develop the problem-solving skills that are necessary even when starting an independent business, working for a company, or engaging in a specific job within a company. In addition, we learn how to use gaps in business from examples of content utilization. The goal is to learn the basic solution method of the general gap in the basic design of the system (requirements definition and analysis) and the project, and to acquire the project management skills necessary for the startup and management.
