Hoshin Kanri/Policy Deployment

Hoshin Kanri

Hoshin Kanri

Since hoshin kanri first appeared in the late 1960s, it has become a management system for companies to establish annual policy, pass it down through their organizations and implement it across all departments and functions.1 Hoshin Kanri can be translated as shiny needle or compass; it sets the direction for long-term prosperity. Hoshin kanri is different than what most people think as strategic planning. It goes far beyond the typical strategic planning process and implementation.
