Joel Stanwood: Where to start with Hoshin Kanri in a not-yet-lean company?

By Joel Stanwood, - Last updated: Saturday, April 27, 2013 - Save & Share - Leave a comment
A mid-sized manufacturing company is finalizing its strategic plan and believes that it is time to begin Hoshin Kanri.  The company is not currently operating as a Lean Enterprise -- functional silos create significant amount of waste which results in poor product/service quality and high cost to serve.  Additionally, different departments and regions of the company are "pulling in different directions."  What advice, resources, and lessons learned can you provide to the managers of this company to successfully organize and deploy Hoshin?
