The development team at Gemba Academy has been hard at work to bring you the latest online training course, Hoshin Planning. Currently the course includes 11 video modules, 1 quiz and 11 downloadable files. This brings the total number of videos to 211. While this might seem like an intimidating number, each video is focused on one main idea delivered in no more than 10 to 15 minutes of visuals and explanations.
The Hoshin Planning course follows the breakthrough planning process at the fictional Treetop manufacturing company. The 11 modules are organized as follows:
Module 1: Hoshin planning overview
Hoshin Planning is also known as Hoshin Kanri or Policy Deployment. Hoshin is a planning method that makes sure objectives are aligned across the organization through the catch ball process to develop the objective as well as how it will be achieved.
The Gemba Academy course links the Hoshin Planning process with the use of A3 thinking and the 8-step Practical Problem Solving process, taught in-depth in a separate course of the same name.
