Policy Deployment Workshop for Leaders

The Peters Company is offering a high-velocity Policy Deployment workshop for company executives and senior managers on June 12, 2019 in Wilsonville, Oregon.

Many companies “do Lean things” that deliver incremental, scattershot improvements, yet fail to achieve breakthrough results. Every leader faces the challenge of how to translate vision into measurable improvements that transform the organization into a Lean enterprise.

Lean organizations use Policy Deployment to connect annual objectives with the long-term strategy of a company – in a way that makes sense for every employee. Also known as “Hoshin Kanri” or “Hoshin Planning,” it is a disciplined methodology to reliably execute strategic breakthroughs. Policy Deployment links daily activity with leadership’s vision. 

Participants will walk away with a launch point for this powerful planning and deployment process. Key topics:

  • Policy Deployment vs. Management by Objectives 
  • Policy Deployment and Lean Implementation 
  • Strategic and tactical tools 
  • Tips for successful planning and development
  • Aligning functional strategy to 
    business strategy
  • Translating a plan into action

This hands-on workshop shows how to go beyond “doing lean things” to becoming a Lean company. Participants will learn how to choose the right goals for an organization through an effective feedback process. They will understand and begin to work with important tools and concepts, such as the X-Matrix and Catchball. They will discover how to focus and align strategy with resources to accomplish strategic goals.

Who Should Attend: Company executives and senior managers. A team approach is recommended.


Cost is $600/person. Three or more from the same company at $500/person. Discounts available for Lean Consortium members.
