With increasingly difficult European marketing conditions, many businesses are looking to protect and grow their business through effective strategy planning and execution. Factors such as the current need for increased business agility, the rising importance of customer centricity and the need for speed mean that the old approach to strategy is no longer good enough. A new process and rigour is needed to achieve business results.
As a result, since the beginning of 2012, BMGI has seen a surge in interest surround the Hoshin Kanri Planning process (taken from the traditional Lean philosophy) as a holistic approach to developing and implementing strategy. Through its rigorous management roadmaps and planning tools, Hoshin provides the ability to execute at every step of the way. In the end, you have a systematic way of approaching strategic planning and of managing progress toward achieving your strategic goals.
Anthony Shingleton, BMGI principal and Hoshin Planning lead, states “Hoshin as a concept initially seems easy to apply, but we have found many organizations struggle to cascade top-level strategy into key operational and performance plans at different levels of the business. This means that the strategic plan is not executed effectively and breakthrough transformation is slower than needed. We hope these workshops will be a chance to really help business leaders achieve better results from their Hoshin approach and create sustainable business growth.”
Workshop dates and locations planned are:
8 March : Warsaw, PL (In Polish)
22 March : Paris, FR (In French)
23 May : Brussels, BE (In English)
7 June : London, UK (In English)
21 June : Amsterdam, NL (In English)
