Sharpen your leadership skills and discover a proven method for successfully executing your strategy.

Sign up now.
Make this the year that you finally succeed at executing your strategy. This workshop will show you a proven way to create and achieve your company’s annual objectives.
A research study published by Harvard Business Review* notes how leaders struggle more with executing strategy than developing it. This class provides a framework for executing strategy by engaging all levels of the organization. Especially when teams are operating remotely, it is critical to ensure alignment to shared objectives.
In this workshop, you will learn through a combination of instruction and peer-to-peer interaction. Your instructors will lead participants in a simulation of a company’s hoshin process. This simulation immerses you in a situation, like real life, where you must make decisions, debate, and come to alignment. The primary learning is experiential, supported by instruction in relevant tools and examples. Much of your learning will occur in the simulation through peer-to-peer interaction. The process requires participation from all attendees throughout the 9 weeks.
Maximize peer learning as well as instructor time in an online environment that helps you to breakdown strategic planning using hoshin kanri.
As a society we have learned to connect with each other online. Live e-learning provides the same opportunity. By attending this remote workshop, you will be led by your instructor and simulation CEO one step at a time, allowing you the space & time you need to reflect and apply the learning along the way.
- Discuss the fundamental framework for hoshin kanri.
- Clarify conditions for successful execution of hoshin planning and alignment in an organization.
- Discuss how to build a structure of PDCA at individual and corporate levels.
- Understand the relationship of hoshin planning and A3 problem solving.
