This is the word I have heard the in almost almost all models. Hoshin Kanri which is not exactly a model but a way of deploy talks about it too. I heard feed back in class that some people found it hard to understand Hoshin Konri, I probably do agree with them. Though it looks very simple with the Plan Do Check Act Circle, it really is not so simple to implement actually. Required high participation and coordination along with goals that match a companies capability looking into long run with focus on department that need to improve......Too much to remember right?
To make it easier I just call it my pdca cycle for continous improvement. I dont know if I am right or worng in doing that but this it what that makes it easy for me. I llok forward to Pauls lecture tomorrow in class on Hoshin Kanri...
