    Basically it is policy managment or planning.  I have seen it used to disseminate information on what the firms strategic plans and goals are and then integrate that or link it to how we are going to measure them and achieve them.

     It is the annual planning process and deployment.

    Known as Hoshin Planning
    –  Also known as “Policy Deployment”

    What does Hoshin mean ?

    Hoshin Kanri

    *  There are two Chinese characters: ‘Ho’ meaning method or form and ‘Shin’
        meaning shiny needle or compass.
    *  Hoshin means ‘way of setting direction’.
    *  Kanri means ‘control or management’.
    *  It was first used in 1965 by Komatsu.
    *  Instead of Hoshin some companies use the term ‘policy deployment’.

    Nichijo Kanri

    *  Nichijo means ‘Daily’.  Hence ‘Nichijo Kanri’ means ‘Daily Management’.
    *  It is the complement to Hoshin Kanri, covering all the other things.
    *  It is usually covered by Business Fundamentals and Implementation Plans.
     
    Many Organizations have used it. We have used it extensively in Hewlett-Packard
