1.6 Conclusion

If civilizations are considered as human device/institutional system and enterprises are one of the primary vehicles to update civilizations in future, the elements of civilization that enterprises create become a critical matter. When it matters, we need to study redesigning systems in connection with how to control corporations as a system. It is also necessary to consider compatibility with existing elements of civilization and connection with cultures as behavioral patterns of human beings which are more strongly coupled.
