Change is all around us and indeed is being forced on us. Kaizen is about ‘good change’ and is something we need to implement in order to adapt, survive and even thrive in the current climate. Don’t just react to change. Drive change to improve your business.
Kaizen is often translated as meaning continuous improvement and this may mean having the ‘shop floor’ come up with and implement small, seemingly inconsequential good changes each day, every day.
But even a 0.1% improvement every day is over 20% a year. And it is compound!
Where do you get it?
How do you do it?
Often howver, continuous improvement won’t break the intractable problems. For these you need breakthrough improvement (often called kaizen blitz) – a three day to one week intensive program to deliver that step change to solve that intractable problem.
How do you set it up?
How do you run it?
