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 training can be taken in-person or remote facilitated.
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.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
“We were introduced to Hoshin Kanri through CME several years ago and have been on a journey of implementing and refining this valuable planning tool ever since, with CME’s assistance. Hoshin Kanri has brought us to a higher level of sophistication and accountability in our execution planning, and we are fortunate to have had the resources provided by CME.”
