Doubling or trebling profits may seem an exaggeration. But with the right tools and guidance, any reasonably competent enterprise can achieve what appears at first sight farfetched. What is the secret to our consistent success at achieving the incredible? Simply that we have long experience guiding clients through a business improvement system known as Hoshin Kanri for small businesses.


Hoshin Kanri, the Japanese art of business transformation


Hoshin Kanri has its origins in the legendary Toyota Production System. Over several decades, Toyota developed the whole idea of Hoshin Kanri as the backbone to their famed continuous improvement concept. It is an open secret that Hoshin Kanri was the guiding power that transformed Toyota into a world beating car manufacturer.  Since then, other world class global companies such as Sony, Intel and Hewlett Packard have adopted Hoshin Kanri as a transformative business improvement system second to none.


But Hoshin Kanri is not just for the big guys. As a matter of fact, any average small or medium sized business can use Hoshin Kanri to achieve fast results. The reason is that in essence Hoshin Kanri is a ready-made business operating system. Apart from being adaptable for almost any organization, Hoshin Kanri has several key advantages for business improvement. Perhaps the most useful is its ability to orchestrate the rapid delivery of a diverse range of improvement projects. Not one by one, but planning and implementing them all at the same time. As such, this powerful planning system works faster and more reliably than other conventional methods.


Hoshin Kanri works with our human nature


A major factor in the reliability of the system is that Hoshin Kanri is carefully attuned with our genetic heritage. What we mean by this is that individuals have a powerful natural instinct to collaborate together towards shared interests. And Hoshin Kanri provides the essential structure, coaching and training to allow people to work closely together at a level of productivity far higher than the norm. With Hoshin Kanri we help you to quickly and easily:


  • Mobilize and integrate every business process, sub-system, function and department in the improvement process.
  • Align operational resources and activities with long-term goals.
  • Stimulate a high degree of employee engagement in relentless problem-solving and continuous improvement.
  • Build strategic capability.


As a result you get:


1  Rapid uplift in profits and net worth of an enterprise.

2  Rapid business growth.

3  Impressive 33 : 1 return on investment in the process.

4  Reduced risks inherent in DIY improvement systems.

“Economies have gyrated, stock markets have crashed, and the poster companies of the 1990s hailed in other business books have flown a ballistic trajectory.
