"Socio-Technical Management: Aiming for People-Friendly DX" by Mihoko Sakurai and Jiro Kokuryo
Socio-technical management is a way of thinking that regards IT systems not as mere tools for improving efficiency, but as something that supports people's happiness and diverse needs. The goal is to improve the overall quality of life. What is necessary for the practice of socio-technical management is the integrated design of social and technical systems. Digital technology is required to respond to the diverse needs of each individual in a detailed and gentle manner. This book clarifies that the fruits of digital transformation (DX) can be returned to society as a whole through integrated design of social and technical systems.(See the amazon link below for details.)
