Catch Ball / Hoshin Kanri (Online Class)

September 14 @ 8:30 am - 11:30 am

Hoshin Kanri is a Lean Strategic Planning tool. Hoshin Kanri applies Lean principles and practices to enterprise planning. Catch Ball is embedded within Strategic Planning (Hoshin Kanri) as a practice of designing discrete components of the plan by sharing ideas and “tossing” them back and forth to create a better plan (playing catch with ideas).

  • Introduction to Hoshin Kanri
  • Foundation of Hoshin
  • The Hoshin Kanri Process
  • Tools of Hoshin
  • Management Role
  • Catchball Concepts and Practices
    Prerequisite: None, although this workshop is targeted towards individuals whose responsibilities include leading change.
