Kaizen Event

Kaizen – This is a japanese word that combines the ideas of “change” and “goodness” which basically translates to “improve for the better.”

In practice a Kaizen is a rapid improvement event that generally spans from 1 to 5 days and involves key process participants focusing on solving a narrowly scoped process improvement opportunity. The difference between Kaizens and typical workshops is threefold; the planning for the event is extensive, leadership has given explicit approval for change and the agreed upon improvement takes place before the Kaizen event is completed.
