While the Hoshin Kanri planning process may sound very easy, the truth is that many organizations need to complete a series of steps in order to completely adopt the Hoshin Kanri methodology.
So, if you are considering implementing the Hoshin Kanri planning process in your organization, here are the Hoshin Kanri steps that you should follow:
Step #1: Establish the Vision and Know The Current Situation
Here are some of the questions that you should be able to answer during this step:
- What are your long-term plans?
- What is your current mission and vision of the organization?
- How does your daily management system work and how does your organizational structure work?
- What procedures and policies are already in place and what are the ones that need to be rearranged or to be eliminated?
Step #2: Come Up With Breakthrough Objectives
During this step, you can use different tools to help you identify growth opportunities. One of the tools that tend to be more used is the four quadrant of growth that is a simple adaptation of the Ansoff Matrix.
