Hoshin Kanri Training


Live Workshops
Knowledge is the key to change

Knowing effective strategy formulation is critical in this economy. Leaders must have the ability to develop operational business strategies and then know how to link strategy to operations. Understanding how to take business strategies from plan to action sets real leaders apart; and changes mediocre organizations to dynamic businesses. Forward-looking strategy development can make the difference between a profitable organization and one that does not succeed.

We offer strategic business planning courses and strategy formulation seminars for managers at all levels. The entire strategic planning process is covered in detail from listening to the Voice of the Customer to strategy deployment for the entire organization.

Online Training
E-Learning is cost effective and consistent

We provide online training focused on improving the effectiveness.  Web-based learning insures that everyone hears the same thing.  With stand-up training there is variation, there’s no way around it.   Online training provides consistent messages.  We can also tailor our existing Hoshin Kanri online training to fit the needs of your organization and provide group rates that are very affordable.

Combining live facilitation with online learning is the most effective way to create positive change within your organization.  Contact us on how we can help you create an implementation plan, customize our online training and train your in-house facilitators on how to lead strategic planning initiatives.
