Hoshin Kanri



Hoshin Kanri, often referred to as Hoshin Planning or Policy Deployment, stands as a potent strategy deployment methodology that has been embraced by some of the world's most successful companies, including Toyota, Komatsu, Danaher, and others. It offers a systematic and integrated approach to realizing long-range key entity objectives, which are characterized by their audacious nature, spanning a strategic horizon of 3-5 years with minimal deviation.

At its core, Hoshin Kanri embodies a dual approach that is instrumental to its effectiveness. Firstly, it centers on defining and pursuing these long-term objectives diligently. These objectives serve as guiding stars for the organization, aligning every effort towards their realization. Secondly, and equally crucial, the Hoshin Kanri process doesn't lose sight of the essential day-to-day business measures required for the organization's ongoing success. This approach ensures that the organization not only strives for the future but also continuously improves its key business processes in real-time.



















The Four Phases of Hoshin Planning


This Hoshin Kanri PPT training presentation seeks to provide a comprehensive understanding of this strategic methodology. Participants will learn how to communicate goals effectively, align them with the organization's overarching vision, deploy breakthrough objectives that foster cross-functional collaboration, and establish a structured review process to ensure the successful realization of strategic goals.

With the discipline of Hoshin Kanri in place, organizations can expect to reap several tangible benefits:

  • Focus on Vital Goals: Hoshin Kanri directs the entire company's attention towards a select few vital goals, avoiding the dispersion of efforts on numerous trivial objectives.

  • Alignment Towards Breakthroughs: Through involving the entire management team in the planning process, Hoshin Kanri creates alignment towards breakthrough objectives.

  • Effective Communication: It ensures that key goals are communicated clearly to all managers and staff, fostering a shared understanding of the organization's strategic direction.

  • Cross-Functional Cooperation: Hoshin Kanri integrates and encourages cross-functional cooperation, promoting collaboration across various departments to achieve breakthroughs.

  • Accountability: A structured review process holds participants accountable for achieving their part of the plan, enhancing responsibility and commitment to goal attainment.
