Kaizen Methodology Overview:
Kaizen is a Japanese term that translates to "change for the better" and is used as a continuous improvement method. A Kaizen represents a focused effort by a team to make quick but meaningful improvements to a defined area of a business process. Kaizens are improvement events where people work on a focused improvement only for a few days, a full week or possibly two weeks. There can be "levels of Kaizens" from easy to difficult/complex. In a traditional Kaizen project, the employees from a particular work area meet with a few experts for four or five days straight and complete most or all of an improvement cycle on a narrowly targeted high-priority issue. Kaizens, if done properly, can be the quickest and most effective tool for improvement in a wide variety of processes.
