Developing and Cascading Hoshin Kanri Directional Management KPI's (2 Day Class)

This 2 day workshop will take a deep dive into helping clarify the relationship of Hoshin Kanri directional management planning to A3 problem solving within each level of the organization (vertically and horizontally) ensuring all of the functional areas begin to see through the same continuous improvement lens. It will look at the macro viewpoint (higher level strategy goals) and breaking it down into department and team levels and what they looks like cascading downward as the goals are dispersed.

Many organizations discuss with how to best engage the workforce to an aligned direction that ensures business viability. The session helps CEO’s, Executives, Middle management to the supervisor level understand that everyone that is an influencer and change agent has the responsibility of connecting the company's people to the purpose/true north of the organization. So how to do this effectively?  How can leaders build and condition the culture of an organization into one in which the work they are doing is value-added and aligned in its approach to long-term growth and sustainability? 

Hoshin Kanri is a process that aligns people and their individual work to their organization's functions and activities with its strategic objectives/tactics. If differentiates strategic A3’s as they relate to problem solving A3’s making connections that cascade through level/scope.  Hoshin alignment/thinking encourages SDCA (Standardize-Do-Check-Act) before PDCA can effectively be done.   Standardization is the foundation to see abnormality at a glance in order ensure the internal and external customer needs are being met. 

Lastly, this thinking/planning encourages creativity in each team member at each level as goals are developed in a dynamic, catch-ball 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.
