- Discuss fundamental framework for hoshin kanri.
- Clarify conditions for successful execution of hoshin planning and alignment in an organization.
- Develop an initial plan to implement hoshin kanri in your own organization.

Many organizations struggle with how to best engage the workforce to an aligned direction that ensures business viability. In most cases, upper management understands that it has the responsibility of connecting the company’s people to the purpose of the organization. But how do you do that effectively? How can managers build the culture of an organization into one in which management is purposeful in its approach?
Hoshin planning is a management system that aligns – both vertically and horizontally – an organization’s functions and activities with its strategic objectives by releasing the creativity in each team member as goals are developed in a dynamic, catchball process that involves a dialogue between each level of management about annual corporate objectives. This engaged dialogue promotes the capability of the organization to manage based on purpose.
“Simulations and manual provided practical and visual model for learning.”
To get the most out of this workshop, we recommend taking it with a workshop on A3 Management: Managing to Learn.
Lean leaders, managers, and executives involved with strategy deployment.
Or anyone with one of the following problems:

What to Expect After Registration
One week before your workshop(s) you will receive an email from LEI containing a link to download an electronic version of your workshop manual(s). Please add firstname.lastname@example.org to your safe-senders list in order to ensure you receive this message.
When you receive your e-manual(s) one week before your workshop(s) you have the following options:
Do nothing. You will be given a notepad and pen at your workshop and the slides and information contained in the electronic manual are the same that will be used by the instructor during your workshop.
Print out a copy. If you prefer to have a hard-copy manual (we recommend double-sided), you may create one and bring it with you to your workshop.
Download. Put the e-manual(s) on a iPad or other device. You may find a PDF-writer App useful in accomplishing this.
Please note that it is your decision to print, store, and access the e-manual before and during your LEI workshop. We will not be providing hard-copy manuals at the workshop and it is NOT required that you have a printed copy with you. If you are unable to perform any of these or need any assistance, please email LEI at email@example.com.
Workshop Materials are available for 30 days after the workshop has completed.
