Hoshin Kanri
Developing Strategy for Effective Execution

by Josh Howell

May 23rd

Hoshin workshop illusztráció

Strategy is hard. But don’t worry, not just for you!

It is hard to formulate, sure. Research also shows that most companies struggle with execution, too.

Hoshin kanri – a management process for developing and executing a focused strategy with broad participation in PDCA (plan-do-check-act) cycles – has helped lean companies achieve breakthrough results for decades.

In this workshop, through a mix of instruction and peer-to-peer interaction, I will use an immersive simulation to teach an approach to developing strategy that engages and enables leaders across the company for business innovation. You and the other participants will assume a role in the business and work through a cross-functional process of strategy development that will set you up for strategy execution like never before.

Come and join me for this workshop if you are a cross-functional business leader or someone who leads or supports strategy or lean transformation at your company.

Who will be your trainer?

For over a decade, he has supported individuals and organizations with lean transformations for improved business performance. As a coach, he helps people become lean thinkers and practitioners through experiential learning, believing such an approach can lead to enterprise-wide improvement. Regular e-letters are how he shares what he’s learning with lean practitioners worldwide.

Prior to joining LEI, Howell was an architect and implementer of a lean operating and management system for retail stores at Starbucks Coffee Company, where he also created a team of lean coaches who helped facilitate and sustain the improvements globally. The system enabled improved quality for products and experiences, increased product availability, and reduced waste (eg. brewed coffee). It was implemented by creating problem-solving experiences for managers at all levels, developing that valuable capability across the company.
