With the KAIZEN training, you will be able to:
Learn how to implement a strategy where employees at all levels of a company work together proactively to achieve regular, incremental improvements to the manufacturing process.
KAIZEN is a Japanese word that can be translated to mean “improvement” or “change for the better.” The two characters that make up the word are “Kai” (meaning "change") and “zen” (meaning “good”).
In the origins of Lean (the Toyota Production System), Kaizen was practiced by all employees. It was a part of everyone’s job to identify and implement small incremental improvements in the workplace. Masaaki Imai documented this in his seminal 1986 book KAIZEN.
Nowadays, Kaizen is used in many different organizations as an improvement process, built upon the discipline of the Plan Do Study Adjust (PDSA) or Plan Do Check Act (PDCA) cycles. It’s a structured but non-bureaucratic way to engage everybody in identifying problems and improving the workplace.
The participants will attend a theoretical training session on the KAIZEN and a workshop to learn how to implement and follow-up an effective KAIZEN Program.
The KAIZEN training workshop will be performed using specific templates and a benchmark example.
