Long-term successful corporate culture with Hoshin Kanri
Consistent and continuous work on the Ginzinger company strategy
In order to be able to offer our customers a partnership that stands for long-term, mutual success - in a strongly changing and complex environment - we at Ginzinger work consistently and continuously on our own company strategy. Methodically we rely on the Japanese management system "Hoshin Kanri".
With the implementation of "Hoshin Kanri" this year, we have further refined the system for the planning, implementation and ongoing monitoring of our corporate goals. The focus is always on meeting the needs of our customers, actively driving their innovations and ultimately achieving long-term success.
The special thing about Hoshin Kanri is that not only the management level but all employees are actively involved and take responsibility for their actions. They all work out sub-goals for their areas, secure support from other areas, align the goals and implement them consistently. We improve with every goal we achieve. This strengthens both our cooperation and our motivation.
In this way we can offer our customers an economically robust foundation in the long term, giving them a technological advantage in their industry. Changes in the market are recognized early.
Hoshin Kanri offers the ideal mix to maintain what is tried and tested and to react agilely to new requirements. A current market analysis by Weiss Engineering (www.in4ma.de) in the EMS market confirms that this approach is right & important. According to the study, one third of the approximately 1,600 existing electronics companies in the DACH region will no longer exist in five years. As a "complete supplier" of technical solutions over the entire product life cycle, Ginzinger electronic systems is well prepared for the future with Hoshin Kanri. We are a problem-solving specialist on whom our customers can rely 100% in the long term.
