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 Kanri Catchball
Hoshin kanri comes to life with A3 dialogues: top down, bottom up, and middle out. Each person at each level has clear responsibililty and ownership. Each person uses the A3 forauthority-on-demand to get the authority needed when needed.

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.
