Hoshin Kanri


I personally believe that hoshin kanri is generally poorly understood and underrepresented in the lean world. To apply PDCA, the most fundamental improvement practice, to business planning and strategy, which is awfully darn important, seems like it couldn't be a better fit. Tom Jackson, perhaps the leading authority on the subject, just released a new article in SME's Lean Directions on the subject. Check it out here. Or you can see a post on his book previously done for the blog here:

Hoshin Kanri for the Lean Enterprise

Mark's Note: Thanks, Jamie. On the same topic, I just received a copy of the new LEI book on the topic, “Getting the Right Things Done.” I'll try to get a review posted in the near future.
