Book summary: Hoshing Kanri for the Lean Enterprise
“Hoshin Kanri for the Lean Enterprise” by Thomas L. Jackson is one of the best references for learning Hoshin and one of my favorite books about Lean. It includes a complete how-to guide and many examples and templates you can use. Of course a book alone is useless without practice, but it can make your first Hoshin journey (with the help of a coach/sensei) considerably easier.
Warning: This book contains the complete Hoshin Kanri system. Many times you don’t need all the tools, especially for the first Hoshin cycles, so just keep it simple. Hoshin is defined as “a set of experiments” so trial and error is part of the game.
Here you can find my book summary/notes, they are totally personal and absolutely incomplete, but maybe helpful for you!
