Hoshin Kanri: Seven Key Steps to Successful Strategic Planning and Deployment

Formation / Planification stratégique

Course Description

Who better than you to lead your organization to its true destiny? All that you are missing is the roadmap to do so – a series of clear steps that outline the structured approach to follow and that would also ensure that employees would work collaboratively with you everyday to achieve this goal … despite all those operational issues that all too often divert your focus.

This is the essence of strategic planning, an exercise that has traditionally garnered the reputation of being too theoretical and too cumbersome. Not true! This one-day training course covers everything you need to know to be able to grab hold of the reins and steer your organization to where you believe it needs to go!

If you are willing to give strategic planning a second chance, The Mouvement québécois de la qualité has published an internationally renowned guide on this very subject and has coached dozens of companies along the way. So, go ahead, dream … and make them all come true!
