Strategy Deployment (Hoshin Kanri)

A strategy is useless without a focused implementation. We support our customers intensively in strategy implementation throughout planning, goal derivation and goal coordination between organizational areas, as well as subsequent implementation. We specifically design the approach to the needs of our clients according to the Hoshin Kanri or Policy Deployment approach. To this end, we accompany our clients through the strategy derivation process, strategy meetings, the goal coordination process, the definition and implementation of measures, and the ongoing evaluation and adjustment of the work of a living strategy. We also quickly revitalize stalled strategy projects and seamlessly integrate tools such as Objectives & Key Results (OKR), Balanced Scorecard and approaches such as Value Stream Management into the approach.
