Strategic Deployment Flier


Strategy Deployment: Also known as Hoshin Kanri, it is a methodology for capturing and translating the organization’s vision, goals and objectives into executable, actionable and measurable events appropriate to each level of the organization. 

  • Does your organization have a vision?
  • Do you know where you want to go?
  • Are your KPI’s meaningful and driving the correct behavior?
  • Do you have true alignment of the management team to ensure the vision becomes reality?


Wouldn’t it be….:
◊ nice to have a solid game plan, so that all improvement events and daily actions are taking your company in the right direction?

◊ better if all managers knew where the company was going so that they could support it properly?

◊ great to have metrics that effectively show you how to adjust course, for short and long term trends?

Strategic Deployment Matrix

There are 5 steps:

1. Strategy Setting: Selecting a vital few goals, 5-7 usually.

2. Strategic Performance Measures: Determining KPI’s that can be affected locally and are meaningful to run the daily business toward the desired future state.

3. Strategy Deployment: Translating objectives into activities along the value stream (you must know your value streams) that will support the objectives along with how performance will be monitored.

4. Strategy Implementation: Plans, actions, time phases and responsibilities are laid out on a single sheet.

5. Strategy Evaluation: Routine review of targets, with updated actions to correct deficiencies.
The above process is conducted on an annual cycle.
