Hoshin Kanri is a Japanese term for strategy deployment. It creates a process for sharing and deploying the direction, goals and approaches from top management to employees and for each unit of the organization to conduct work according to plan. Under a Hoshin Kanri approach, organizational plans are developed using both top-down and bottom-up perspective – and look at both process and results. This provides a common understanding of priorities that connects each person to the purpose and allows executives to collaborate with line management to determine direction.
Our Hoshin Kanri curriculum has been updated to help manufacturers navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
