Abstract

In startup companies, it is important to understand and assess the abilities that are required to become the core competencies of the organization. However, startups have limited resources, so they need an easier technique to measure the match with the culture and traits of the company. To do this, it is first necessary to consider what characteristics of the organization's core competencies. After conducting action research and analyzing meetings at a high-tech start-up company managed by Mr. Nakaya as CTO, we found that the ability to tolerate uncertainty, such as the proficiency to create hypotheses without being limited by immediate facts and methodologies, is a skill of great value, especially to the company. We also found the characteristics of those who have these abilities and those who do not appear in conversations by using correspondence analysis, or principal component analysis (PCA). Furthermore, using the PCA results, we aim to create a framework that can be used universally within the company that conducted the analysis.
