Research and Markets is introducing a new continuous improvement methodology: hoshin kanri. They claim that this is not really the next big thing to process improvement. It just provides a context for Six Sigma, Lean manufacturing, kaizen, and the others.

It is a strategic approach to continuous improvement that provides a context for all of the individual elements such as Six Sigma or Lean Manufacturing.

David Hutchins’ Hoshin Kanri shows you how to develop a dynamic vision for continuous improvement; to implement effective policies to support it; to link key performance indicators to Six Sigma, Lean Manufacturing and Kaizen and to sustain a strategy-led programme for improving business performance.
