Deploying Hoshin Kanri as a Competitive Weapon

2,955

Published on

This presentation evaluates the Hoshin Kanri concept, what it is, how it works, what can go wrong and how to make Hoshin really work.
Slide 3: Most people familiar with Hoshin Kanri will know that it translates from Japanese into a "Vision Compass". More importantly, Hoshin is gaining traction due to its recognition of the need to link direction (strategy formulation) with management (implementation).
Slide 4: A key feature of Hoshin Kanri is the concept of Breakthrough Objectives. The concept encourages aggressive objectives together with a structured method for cascading these and breaking them down into manageable pieces.
Slides 5 and 6 address common responses from executives one might encounter when trying to introduce Hoshin Kanri together with the symptoms suggesting that Hoshin Planning is required. The symptoms listed will strike a chord with many readers and represent the product of poor strategy execution.
Slide 8 identifies some of the many leading organizations using Hoshin as their strategy execution methodology. The majority of organizations that we at i-nexus are talking to (particularly in the USA) are either considering implementing Hoshin Kanri or have already made a start.
Slide 9 identifies the value of having a strong strategy execution system by tracking share price performance.
Slides 11 and 12 introduce the link between Hoshin Kanri, and in particular the X matrix concept, and Balanced Scorecards. The traditional Balanced Scorecard clearly introduced value by looking at business metrics from more than purely a financial perspective. In contrast however, the X matrix is a far more robust tool for supporting strategy implementation. The various faces of the X matrix (South, West, North and East) detail the WHAT, HOW FAR, HOW and HOW MUCH of the strategy. Having said that, the X matrix is by no means universally popular as a Hoshin tool and is regarded by some CEO's as too complex. It is clearly a tool more likely to provide value in organizations that are more mature in their strategy execution journey.
Slide 13 shows an example of how the i-nexus software supports both the Hoshin X matrix and Scorecards.
Slide 15 identifies the critical role of the bowling chart in linking between the X matrix and action plans and its use a key management tool to track achievement and lack thereof against goals.
Slide 17 identifies "culture change" as a key barrier to effective Hoshin. Many of our customers do find that the greater transparency achieved with i-nexus can be seen as a threat. This needs to be managed carefully with problems (red traffic lights) seen as discussion points rather than failure.
Slide 22 provides an example of an A3 report. Many i-nexus customers find visual management of progress to be key to obtaining commitment to Hoshin.
Finally slide 24 looks at the value of Hoshin countermeasures in enabling early identification and resolution of barriers to progress.

And the leaders will say.... • We already do this. • We do not have enough time to do this. • We can not possibly plan that far into the future. • We have tried this before. • Our corporate leadership (insert board if appropriate) will never give up control. • The way we do it today is just fine. • We will not maintain this process. • Etc, Etc, Etc...
  6. 6. Slide 6Copyright i-nexus 2012. All rights reserved. Recognise these symptoms? And the organisation will see... • Too many bad projects in process. • Very long lead-times for improvements. • Constantly missed budgets and forecasts. • Senior management vision does not match organizational activities. • Annual objectives rolled out in March instead of January. • Way too many good projects in process. • Year to year plans never seem to connect. • Most employees never seem to feel a part of the team. • Little connection between strategy and continuous improvement.

Performance Management Systems are really designed to help organisations perform three basic tasks: • Monitor… We have to examine our core activities on a regular basis. Collecting data. • Learn…From that examination we have to better understand what is working and what is not. Turning data into information. • Improve… Take the information and turn it into ACTION!

  21. 21. Slide 21Copyright i-nexus 2012. All rights reserved. CEO Sales Lead #2) The “Stretch Goal” Challenge – How to stretch whilst keeping the plan realistic and achievable... We need to double sales by 2015 That’s a serious stretch boss. I’m not sure the team will buy it... We’ve got no choice, the stock’s taking a battering and we need to project growth fast, plus the team can always do more... Ok, we’ll give it a go, but don’t be surprised by the result... The boss needs us to double sales in three years, I’d like achieve that in 2. How? Best we’ve ever done in one year was 20% and that was with double the resources we have now... Look, if we shoot for the stars, at worst we’ll hit the moon... I’m not sure this makes sense, but ultimately it’s your call... XYZ Achieved 200% of quota last year – it shows it can be done – so I’m setting quotas on this basis this year.... But nothing’s fundamentally different ... What makes you think we’ll get a different result this year? Look we need sales people who can deliver... If that’s not you... Time to dust off the CV... SVP VP, Sales A Parody...?

  27. 27. Slide 27Copyright i-nexus 2012. All rights reserved. Key takeaways... • Hoshin is rapidly becoming the de facto Strategy Deployment approach. • Executed well, Hoshin can be a real competitive weapon. • Development and reinforcement of a supportive culture is the primary challenge. • Organisations typically achieve more, in less time, with the Hoshin process with external help. • The right software can improve the probability of success by taking the “heavy-lifting” out of the Hoshin process.
