Make strategy happen with Hoshin Kanri and Toyota Kata

Lean and Agile software development can help your organisation deliver early and often, but this is not sufficient. Without clear and transparent alignment on a strategy, the organisation might still just end up keeping itself busy and not achieving the desired results.

Making your strategy happen involves two major, symbiotic components: strategy alignment and strategy execution.

Aligning on the right strategy can be a challenge in today’s complex world. Hoshin Kanri is an approach to meeting this challenge by drawing for the collective brain trust in your organisation.

Organisations also need to become laboratories: constantly running experiments, generating learning, and applying that learning to continually progress towards their strategy. In this session, you will learn how to create this symbiosis of strategy alignment and strategy execution using Hoshin Kanri and Toyota Kata as one system.
