Hoshin Kanri Strategy Deployment



Kick-start your next fiscal year with Hoshin Kanri!

Hoshin Kanri process (a.k.a. Policy Deployment or Hoshin Planning) is a powerful strategy deployment methodology for defining long-range key entity objectives. These are breakthrough objectives that extend two to five years with little change. In addition, the Hoshin Kanri process does not lose sight of the day-to-day business measures required to run the business successfully.


This dual approach provides an extended period of time for the organization to focus its breakthrough effort, and at the same time, continuously improving key business processes day to day.


This methodology continues to be used by some of the world's most successful companies such as Toyota, Nissan, Rover Group, Texas Instruments, Danaher, Bank of America, Bridgestone Tire, AT&T, Exxon Chemical, SingTel, etc.
