Hoshin Kanri – Lean training for management

Lean is a management philosophy that requires the application of lean principles, especially in management processes and in managing duties. Without clear goal setting and leadership, lean easily ends up being just tinkering with different techniques without any significant results. Utilizing Lean requires perseverance in directing the company culture towards developing and continuously improving its expertise.

Hoshin Kanri is a method for implementing the strategy. Hoshin Kanri can be used to focus the company’s projects on key competitive factors and strategic goals. The Hoshin process strengthens communication between organizations, helps to commit to common goals, and creates a clear model for managing development work and change. The implementation of the Hoshin process does not require participants to have previous lean experience.

The training day gives managers an understanding of lean management principles and techniques and their practical application. After the day’s training , the participants have the capability to begin developing and testing lean management methods in their own organization.

The training is carried out as a company-specific or consortium-type workshop.
