a structured process for the deployment of a strategic plan
What is it?
Strategy deployment (or Hoshin Kanri) is a planning and execution system that applies lean principles to business planning and strategy development. The objective of strategy deployment is to ensure we are working on the “right” things. It is also a way to ensure we match the available resources with the right improvement projects. The key differences between strategy deployment and traditional strategic planning are that strategy deployment has a strong focus on the customer, using a Kaizen approach centred on Plan, Do, Check, Act (PDCA), and is highly engaging to ensure all staff are on board.
