Strategic planning via Hoshin Kanri

Strategic planning is the critical link between your strategy and its execution—and it’s often where organizations break down. Without a method for taking your strategy all the way from senior leaders to the shop floor, you risk long lead times for improvement, year-to-year plans that never connect, and too many projects with too few delivering. Sound familiar? Then your organization needs Hoshin Kanri!

Join Wes Waldo, a veteran in performance excellence and strategic planning, in this online course to discover a process where you can get your entire leadership team involved in everything from the generation of new ideas to a pragmatic and executable approach to bringing those ideas to life.

This online video course provides an overview of strategic planning and a proven method for executing on your goals. Hoshin Kanri, also known as Hoshin Planning, strategy deployment or policy deployment, is a method for involving your entire organization in delivering a combination of breakthrough performance and daily management.
