90% of organizations fail to execute on their strategies - don’t be one of them!

Strategy – or to be precise, the fast, effective execution of each new wave  of  strategy  –  is  now  the  key  concern  of  all  senior  executives, whether  in  the  private  or  public  sector.    It’s  a  challenge  because organizations  have  always  struggled  to  execute  strategy,  and  now  they are  required  to  do  it  rapidly  and  repeatedly  in  an  environment  where errors are often fatal.

The concept of Hoshin Planning (sometimes know as policy deployment or goal deployment) is a popular methodology which addresses this issue. In theory the true benefits of Hoshin Planning are realized when the business objectives are successfully linked and aligned to actions and initiatives, such as Lean Six Sigma. In practice, however, few organizations have been able to realize this potential and integrate these processes successfully, and most that try have found that it quickly degenerates into a form of spreadsheet madness. 

Join Neil Sutcliffe, Chairman of i-nexus, as he outlines why the vast majority of organizations that try to link their policy deployment process with Lean Six Sigma fail to make it work, and what you can do to make sure that your organization is one of the few who see the step change in results that better execution can deliver. In this webinar, Neil shares nearly two decades of practical experience on what it takes to make sure that your operational excellence program is closely aligned with your overall business goals:

  • Hear more about Hoshin Planning and gain insight into the critical factors necessary for successful deployment
  • Understand the common reasons why organizations that try to link their policy deployment process (Hoshin Planning) with Lean Six Sigma fail to make it work
  • Learn practical steps you can take to make sure that your organization is one of the few to deliver the breakthrough results that better execution can achieve
