If you look closely at today's @Work topic, you'll notice that it contains the word “execute”, which means “implement” or “accomplish”. Now, even if you don't know exactly what an executive does, it should be clear that we're talking about men and women of action!

- executive とは、企業で重要な決定を行い、それを実施する上級管理職、例えば、取締役や部長、CEO(最高経営責任者)をさします。
