” A man who chases 2 rabbits will end up catching none”
While most organisations can determine “what” they want, few are able to clearly articulate “how” they can achieve it.
Policy Deployment, also known as hoshin kanri, is a very effective method of clearly identifying and cascading organisation objectives across functions, and deploying through the levels of the business.
This process helps align departments to work on common organisation goals, and helping establish a clear methodof monitoring, reviewing and (if necessary), adjusting focus.
We have successful experience of using this process across manufacturing, health, education, and process sectors.
