“Strive for continuous improvement, instead of perfection.” - Kim Collins
Schedule and Hours
Lean is a powerful, continuous improvement philosophy which focuses on identifying and reducing non-value-added steps within a process whether they be operational or transactional in nature.
One way in which permanent improvements can be brought about is by the use of small, empowered group activities. These improvement activities are often referred to in a lean environment as Kaizens. Kaizen, originally a Buddhist word, loosely translates to describing all of the continuous improvement (CI) activities with an organization.
Kaizen makes uses of small groups of people to make relatively small, positive changes within their own area of expertise.
On completion of this two days course, the participants will be able to:
Gain an understanding of Kaizen philosophy and the importance of creating a continuous improvement culture
Describe Kaizen goals and guiding principles
Learn a Kaizen problem-solving approach and ways to employ it at your organization
Develop a Kaizen tool kit
