KAIZEN webinars 2015 - 2016
Following the successful webinar series co-organised in 2014 with the Kaizen Institute Gmbh (http://www.de.kaizen.com), the EU-Japan Centre organized a new series of KAIZEN webinars.
This new series covered a full range of methods at basic level, offering attendees the key success factors for introducing and implementing LEAN within their company.
What is Kaizen? by Kaizen Institute: http://www.kaizen.com/about-us/definition-of-kaizen.html
Kaizen is the practice of continuous improvement. Kaizen was originally introduced to the West by Masaaki Imai in his book Kaizen: The Key to Japan’s Competitive Success in 1986. Today Kaizen is recognized worldwide as an important pillar of an organization’s long-term competitive strategy. Kaizen is continuous improvement that is based on certain guiding principles:
- Good processes bring good results
- Go see for yourself to grasp the current situation
- Speak with data, manage by facts
- Take action to contain and correct root causes of problems
- Work as a team
- Kaizen is everybody’s business
- And much more!
One of the most notable features of kaizen is that big results come from many small changes accumulated over time. However this has been misunderstood to mean that kaizen equals small changes. In fact, kaizen means everyone involved in making improvements. While the majority of changes may be small, the greatest impact may be kaizens that are led by senior management as transformational projects, or by cross-functional teams as kaizen events.
