Hoshin Planning – Catch Ball

Last week, Beyond Lean focused on strategy deployment or hoshin kanri.  A great concept to help align the priorities for the organization during the year.  A term that appeared was “catch ball”.  This is a term to capture the essence of gaining input through discussion with the next level down in the organization.  It is a great way to get engagement at all levels of the organization and build the buy-in to what the work is for the year.

I found this great video describing what “catch ball” is.  I thought it would do a better job than I could.

Do you use catch ball in your organization or do you have a straight line drill down with objectives?
