To increase the number of personnel who strongly embody the action guidelines, we added more detailed perspectives in the guidelines about independence, autonomy, transformation, and co-creation as well as growth, which is the nexus of all these facets. The seven perspectives are foresight, aspiration, determination, cooperation, accomplishment, improvement, and development. These perspectives precisely define the attitudes and actions expected for each level. This has enabled people to reflect on their current level and clarify what they need to do in order to grow. We believe this competency development is essential to enhancing the aforementioned abilities.
