Hoshin Kanri

Since 2000 or so, I regularly use a Hoshin sheet to jumpstart new projects or business.

Hoshin Kanri has its roots in the 1950s when lectures by Dr. Deming and Dr. Juran in Japan taught the Deming Wheel (PDCA Cycle) and the need to focus on management processes for continuous improvement, including both Breakthrough Management and Daily Management.

Hoshin Kanri is an organising framework for strategic management. It is concerned with four primary tasks:

*it focuses organisation attention on corporate direction by setting, annually, a vital few strategic priorities;
*it aligns these with local plans and programmes;
*it integrates them with daily management, and
*it provides for a structured review of their progress.

More and more companies recognized its value over the 30 years of refinement. Today, ”'[ The Toyota Way]”’ resonates very well with the practices of ”’Agile Software Development”’. Joined with ”'[ holacratic] principles”’, government and practices it grows into a very effective leadership instrument.

Community Created Content

community-created-content.jpgKwam ik tegen bij de weblog van Anton van Elburg: Community Created Content—Law, Business and Policy.



Peter Westerink from Kayoo pointed me to Citizendium (sit-ih-ZEN-dee-um), a “citizens’ compendium of everything,” an open wiki project aimed at creating an enormous, free, and reliable encyclopedia.

Thanks for the pointer Peter. Inspiring for the [ NNN project].

BTW Are you familiar with the developing [[Reputation system for Wikipedia]]? Tom Cross writes about it in Puppy smoothies: Inproving the reliability of open, collaborative wikis.

De macht van de massa

Ode ziet het Wiki-licht:
:Van de andersglobalisten tot de Wikipedianen: zelforganisatie is het sleutelwoord. Niet doen wat je wordt opgedragen, maar doen wat je kan en wil bijdragen – voor een groter geheel. Marco Visscher beschrijft de opkomende participerende cultuur.

[ Aloha] is op de goede weg met haar Wiki voor het schrijven van een schitterend boek.

Reputation: net promoter score (NPS)

Yet another reputation system—a Net Promoter Score (NPS) is the result of a customer satisfaction survey in which customers are asked only one so-called “Ultimate” question:

:”’How likely are you to recommend Company or Product X to a friend or colleague?”’

Does this work for communities and personal reputation as well?

Eduard Povel tipped me on the Natural Capital Institute today—helping society move towards a socially just and environmentally restorative existence.

Digitale LEGO®: moeiteloos doorlopend actueel

Digitale LEGO® moeiteloos doorlopend actueel zonder handmatig onderhoud via mashups”’.

[ Google], [ eBay], [ Amazon], [ YouTube], [] en [ Yahoo] geven externe programmeurs toegang tot delen van hun kernsoftware via zogeheten [ API]s: technische bruggetjes.

Zo ontstaat een nieuw web van zogenaamde mashups. Kortom, API + API = [ mashup]. Ook bekend als ”'[ SAAS—Software As A Service]”’.

[], [] en [ Yahoo Pipes] vereenvoudigen verder de groei van mashups. Koppel dit aan open source tools zoals [ MediaWiki] ([ wiki]) en [ WordPress] ([ blog]) en je krijgt een uitermate rijke voedingsbodem.

Ideaal voor [ inititatieven zoals NNN].

Co-creation: whoever has the smartest customers wins

Do ”’consumer driven innovation”’, customer care and ”'[ Wikinomics]”’ work? Well, at [ Procter & Gamble] they do. Read [ CIO Magazine on Wikinomics].

I’m a ”’big big fan of co-creation”’ and it’s been like this ever since the great Internet technologies like mail, the web and [ Java] emerged. [ Kevin Kelly] already wrote about it when he says: “”'[ And whoever has the smartest customers wins]”’ in his book [ New Rules for the New Economy].

Kelly’s strategies:
*”’Make customers as smart as you are.”’
*”’Connect customers to customers.”’
*”’All things being equal, choose technology that connects.”’
*”’Imagine your customers as employees.”’

The Virtual Community, Howard Rheingold

Yes! Found a long lost book review on The Virtual Community by Howard Rheingold back thanks to Apple Spotlight. While at Sun Microsoystems, I sent the review to my fellow Mulitmedia Ambassadors and Human Interaction Engineers wordlwide on September 1st, 1994.

I was reading a Wired article on novellist Cormac McCarthy, having an office at the reknowned Santa Fe Institute in New Mexico,. This brought back memories of Stuart Kauffman, William Gibson and Howard Rheingold. All writers that have influenced my perspective. Wonderful.
