Hoshin Features & Benefits
When the Leadership Team sets the direction, the organization can be seen to engage and align in real-time, with cascading strategies and metrics, to deliver on the goals. The automated, rapid, and visual plan development dramatically shortens the time from ideas to implementation.
Strengthen Engagement and Accountability
Engagement & Accountability
With defined and transparent responsibilities, people show increased buy-in, cooperation, and contribution. Detailed and supporting actions with specific timeframes by person, function, and entity are clear for all to see. Automated roll up of progress and issues encourages owners to proactively detail corrective actions ahead of formal review meetings. This increased accountability enables the Leadership Team to focus on supporting the owners of the corrective actions to ensure success.
Realize Visible Progress and Time Savings
Visible Progress & Time Savings
The plan comes alive in the system as execution commences. There is no need to wait until formal review meetings to see progress. Intuitive navigation means progress to be viewed real-time, in an automated, color coded, visual management approach. There is no need to spend time creating and revising slides and spreadsheets. The standardized format, requiring less than 30 seconds to update, means the time is spent on execution and progress, and the status is communicated instantly across the organization.
