Beyond Strategic Vision: Effective Corporate Action with Hoshin Planning Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hoshin is a system which was developed in Japan in the 1960's, and is a derivative of Management By Objectives (MBO). It is a Management System for determining the appropriate course of action for an organization, and effectively accomplishing the relevant actions and results. Having recognized the power of this system, Beyond Strategic Vision tailors the Hoshin system to fit the culture of North American and European organizations. It is a "how-to" guide to the Hoshin method for executives, managers, and any other professionals who must plan as part of their normal job.

The management of an organization, whether it be large or small, has as one of its principal responsibilities setting the direction of the organization for the future. The most effective way to set the future direction is to develop a shared vision of what the organization will be in the future, contrast it to the way the organization is now, and then to create a plan for bridging the gap: the Strategic Plan. Beyond Strategic Vision shows you how to do this effectively and efficiently.

Michael Cowley has been a teacher and practitioner of management and strategic planning methodologies since 1972. He is a certified instructor for GOAL/QPC and has worked with a wide variety of clients in the automotive, manufacturing, financial, military, healthcare, and educational fields. Dr. Cowley is President of Cowley & Associates, management consultants in Carnelian Bay, California.

Ellen Domb is President of the PQR Group, a consulting firm specializing in the application of TQM in Upland, California. She has a successful history of teaching and consulting for planning, management, manufacturing, product development, and business systems. Dr. Domb is the author of numerous articles and books on quality management practices.

Comprehensive and complete, from vision to tactical details.

Balanced between day-to-day and long-term strategies.

Designed for anyone to use, even families.

Book News Annotation:

A description of the Hoshin planning process demonstrating the methods and tools for successful managerial implementation. The Hoshin management system, developed in Japan and adapted for Western organizations, helps executives move a company into the future by developing an organizational "shared vision," contrasting that vision with reality, and bridging the gap with strategic planning. Consultants Cowley and Domb outline how this can be accomplished and provide numerous examples of the charts and diagrams which Hoshin devotees hold dear.
