Join AME for a one day event to learn a simple but effective technique for engaging in strategic planning. Hoshin Kanri (policy planning/deployment) is a multi-step process used in strategic planning in which strategic goals are communicated throughout the company and then put into action. The Hoshin Kanri strategic planning system originated from Japanese business, but has since spread around the world.
Senior managers understand they are responsible for aligning people with the company’s purpose and objectives. In most cases, they have questions about how to do that. Learn how strategy deployment (hoshin planning) is a proven management system that vertically and horizontally aligns your organization's functions and activities with strategic objectives. Discover how the strategy alignment process also releases the creativity in each team member as department, group and individual goals are developed.
This interactive workshop will show attendees an established, reliable methodology for applying strategy deployment that creates a clear strategic framework, strengthens problem-solving capabilities and motivates team members.
