Achieving high performance through your people
With David Hutchins
How do you align your entire organisation towards the achievement of its strategic goals and vision? During this interactive webinar, David Hutchins will explain the principles of Hoshin Kanri and how it can be used as a very practical approach to achieving high performance through people.
