Hoshin Kanri - Aligning Your Organizational Objectives (2 Day Class)



This workshop will help leaders understand hoshin planning as a core process for defining and creating annual objectives and developing people based on those objectives.

This workshop will also clarify how hoshin planning (also referred to as strategy deployment) can be utilized to define a clear strategic framework that can strengthen an organization through enabling sustained high performance and produces long-term results. 

Finally, this workshop will clarify the relationship of hoshin planning (which functions like the skeleton) to A3 problem solving(which functions like the muscle).

Many organizations struggle with how to best engage the workforce to an aligned direction that ensures business viability. In most cases, upper management understands that it has the responsibility of connecting the company's people to the purpose of the organization. But how do you do that effectively? How can managers build the culture of an organization into one in which management is purposeful in its approach?

Hoshin planning is a management system that aligns – both vertically and horizontally – an organization's functions and activities with its strategic objectives.

Hoshin planning is also ideally a process that releases creativity in each team member as goals are developed in a dynamic, catchball process that involves a dialogue between each level of management about annual corporate objectives. This engaged dialogue promotes the capability of the organization to manage based on purpose.
