Hoshin Kanri

Management- and Leadership Training

Strategy development and corporate management as per Hoshin Kanri

Giving guidance, keeping direction, and reaching the goal

A successful sailor knows how to use the wind and therefore reaches his destination. The compass leads him the right direction. In the second half of the last century the Hoshin Kanri principle of development and cascading of goals was created in Japan, with support from William Edwards Deming und Joseph M. Juran. Meanwhile Peter Drucker developed his system of management by objectives. At first, it seems like both concepts are similar but looking at it more closely, there are significant differences. Based on a company vision, Hoshin Kanri defines breakthrough targets over a 3 to 5-year period and the resulting goals for the following year. This process is aligned with the vertical and horizontal organizational structure. It ensures that all involved parties along the value stream have the same goal. The cross functional view increases everyone’s understanding for the improved value stream. Apart from a uniform understanding of the current situation and the goal, Hoshin Kanri also develops the overall values of all participants.
