Strategic plans are often developed in isolation and rarely aligned across an organization. As a result, the organization's strategy and strategic objectives are not well defined, are not well communicated and do not impact day-to-day decision making.
Our Strategy Planning and Deployment Process, using Strategy Maps and Hoshin Kanri, provides an organization with simple and effective methods and tools to develop, communicate and align its business objectives, strategic initiatives, operating plans, targets and goals.
The strategic plan then forms the basis for establishing an effective Performance Management System and for initiating critical Operational Excellence & Lean Six Sigma projects and activities. Strategy Deployment using Hoshin Kanri has been successfully deployed by many world-class organizations.
An "Introduction to Strategy Deployment with Hoshin Planning" presentation for management teams takes about 2.5 to 3 hours. An implementation workshop normally requires 2 to 3 days of preparation, a one- or two-day development workshop, and potentially 2 to 3 follow-up sessions to ensure a successful implementation.
