Problem Solving solution.
The first step in problem solving is to clearly understand the
problem so that you can come up with correct solutions.
Some questions to ponder on during problem solving
process include: What is the problem? When did it happen?
Why did it happen? What solutions have we tried before?
What solutions worked and which ones didn’t? How can we
solve this particular problem? How much time do we have?
If the challenge being addressed is big, break it down into smaller pieces and resolve each section at a time.
Each time you come up with a solution for a problem then implement the solution and it work outs well, this in-
turn helps to strengthen your problem solving skills.
Some solutions may work and others might not, on average strive to come up with as many good solutions as
possible. Brainstorming with others similarly helps to identify options and narrow down choices.
Leadership Education And Development
Lean Enterprise: Hoshin Kanri
The concept of Hoshin Kanri provides clarity and
focus to an organization, by aligning strategic goals
through all levels of an organization. It creates an
organic flow of information which runs through an
organization, where goals run down from
management, through the mid-level operation to
the production floor. In return, the flow reverses
and the production floors provides resulting
actionable data flowing up through mid-level
operations to management, thus providing
Taking the first step of implementing Hoshin Kanri begins with developing long-range strategic goals for the
organization. A good rule of thumb is to limit the strategic goals applied to five or less to be truly effective. It
also allows the focus of energy and resources on what efforts are most important to the organization.
Remember, if everything is important, then nothing is important. They should also be either evolutionary or
revolutionary. Evolutionary is incremental achievements through continuous improvement. Revolutionary is all
about taking big strides, making breakthrough changes with dramatic scope. Both types of goals are crucial to
the life of an organization.
The next step would be to develop the tactics for implementing the goals identified. This step is the purview of
middle management operations. They are the experts at implementing and allocating resources. There should
be a respectable period of thoughtful back and forth between management and mid-level management to
ensure goals are clearly understood and that there is a strong alignment between tactics and goals. Over time,
tactics can be adjusted and should be, as things changes. Results must be measured and calibrated.
In the final stage, production operations at the supervisory and team levels work out the details on strategy and
clearly understand the strategic goals. This is where the action takes place and success will be measured.
Management and leaders must stay connected with actions being implemented, mainly through Gemba walks
and monitoring of production data flowing up from the production floor.
The flow created with Hoshin Kanri closes loops and ensures focus, clarity and highly efficient operations. It
allows organizations to be agile and flex to changing situations in an efficient manner.
