Objectives, Strategies, and Hierarchy of Purpose In any planning, especially strategic planning, it is vitally important to select the "right" objectives! In fact, some would insist that this is the primary role of strategic planning. In addition to setting the "right" objectives, part of the job of planning is to determine the best means of achieving the objectives and, further, to facilitate effective implementation and review of the means as the plan is executed. In order to select the "right" objectives, the planners must, among other things, do their work in the context of the higher-order purposes of the organization.

It is how they manage. Our observation is that Strategic and Operational planning are seen as obligatory, onerous activities. Our hope is that this book will change this perception to one in which managers see planning as their most powerful agent and mechanism for setting and meeting ambitious and exciting goals for the organization. Finally, we have both found that a specific planning system, Hoshin, is dramatically superior to any of the other systems we have encountered. In the course of our practical and consulting work, we have refined this system to a point where we feel it is appropriate to share it with a wider audience.

The most frequent reason we are retained by our clients is to help them achieve better business results. While we find a myriad of problems preventing good performance, a common denominator in almost all organizations with performance problems is lack of an effective, or for that matter, any planning process. While it is sometimes necessary to address serious operational problems immediately, we always try to take the approach of asking why the operational problems occurred in the first place. The reasons are frequently weaknesses in planning, or simply failure to plan.
