However, its methodology can be used to do all of the organization's planning when an organization has become very skilled in its use. This has a distinct value in that it facilitates creating an integrated company-wide plan, as will be discussed later in the book (Chapter 7). Nevertheless, this is a good place to discuss the relationship between Hoshin and Daily Management. Hoshin and Daily Management The basic premise of Hoshin is that the organization will identify an area or two each year for special focus and will seek a major improvement in it.

Creative methodologies such as those put forward by de Bono (1992) and Nadler and Hibino (1990) are perfectly compatible with Hoshin. The creative process needs to be capable of eliciting insights and ideas from all levels in the organization, not just management. The mechanisms for this process are "built-into" the Hoshin approach. Planning should be done by those who are expected to implement the plan, not by a special planning group. Mintzberg (1994), however, has made a convincing case that planning organizations can play an extremely vital role in this process, principally in the areas of providing objectivity, pertinent data, and analysis.
