In a lean management system, hoshin kanri—translated as management’s compass—is the discipline that strengthens alignment from the board room to the frontline, so that all employees see their work reflected in the organization’s strategy.
Without hoshin, an organization’s strengths are left unsupported and its lean improvement work directionless.
Your strategy will be treated as an ongoing process, not a seasonal activity, in which leaders continually monitor changing internal and external forces and adjust resource deployment to maintain focus and achieve their most important measures of success.
Working closely with your executive team, we help transform your strategy discipline by leveraging your existing strategic planning analytics and creating a robust structure and method for strategy deployment.
Your teams will learn to clarify expectations and capabilities so they can perform at higher levels, as well as employ consensus-driven methods that facilitate agreement on near-term action plans and long-range outcomes.
By developing your managers’ skills, goals and a visually managed system can be cascaded throughout the organization. Execution can also become more effective, project management structures fortified, and the hoshin practice becomes part of everyday habits. We’ll also deepen your board or governing body’s understanding of lean and appropriate engagement in hoshin and strategy deployment.
