Abstract/Description

As companies continue to evolve towards more agile ways of working, we're seeing significant benefits: teams are delivering value with higher levels of quality, faster than ever, and with levels of engagement not seen before. Yet, a common challenge continues to appear: although teams may be doing great, the direct link to high level strategic objectives is often missed, resulting in confusion, lack of strategic direction and waste.

Hoshin Kanri is a strategy deployment tool aimed at solving this particular problem. Through interactive exercises and group-based business case solving, this workshop will give executives, managers and team members a common language and a concrete methodology to link strategy to execution and understand what they need to leverage Hoshin Kanri in their own organizations.
