Tying improvement efforts to organizational goals is key to ensuring they have a positive impact on the bottom-line. Linking daily work to organizational goals ensures everyone’s activities drive progress. Hoshin Kanri (also known as policy deployment) is a method for making these connections. The Hoshin Kanri process begins with defining leaderships improvement and growth objectives which are then cascaded down throughout the entire organization using a series of connected X-Matrices.
Guided by a Lean business case and the discipline of policy deployment, participants will learn how to align corporate objectives/initiatives with workplace activities and day-to-day operations. We’ll explore implementation roadmaps and application of the Lean process improvement tool kit.
To begin, we guide business leaders through a strategy formation process of defining company-wide improvement and growth objectives, initiatives, key performance indicators, and targets-to-improve. Then, using this information as a foundation, we collaborate with functional leaders throughout the company hierarchy to define their individual functional objectives, initiatives, measures, and improvement targets, all the while ensuring that each set of functional; objectives and targets is directly linked-to and aligned-with the business leaders company-wide objectives. From here we can go to functional action plans, team structures, and execution, all guided by an established management system ensuring accountability, capabilities, sustainment.
