What is Kaizen?

Kaizen is a strategy for creating a culture of continuous improvement. Such a culture is another key feature of a Lean organisation. It is every individual’s responsibility to constantly seek opportunities for improvement within their own and other areas of the organisation.

What does Kaizen involve?

Kaizen involves making even small but significant changes within every area and level of the organisation to improve every aspect of the way things are done. It requires everyone in the company to take responsibility for seeking opportunities for improvement and developing solutions to problems. Kaizen demands teamwork, the empowerment of individuals and an ongoing staff development programme.
