Kaizen refers to a culture of continuous improvement where all employees are actively engaged in improving the company.
The idea of Kaizen is based on the book of Masaaki Imai, a Japanese organizational and management consultant known for his work on quality management and recognized as the father of Continuous Improvement.
Kaizen is a strategy where employees at all levels of a company work together proactively to achieve regular, incremental improvements to the manufacturing process. In a sense, it combines the collective talents within a company to create a powerful engine for improvement.
Kaizen works hand-in-hand with Standardized Work. Standardized Work captures the current best practices for a process, and Kaizen aims to find improvements for those processes.
Today Kaizen is recognized worldwide as an essential pillar of an organization’s long-term competitive strategy. Since introducing this term as a systematic approach to business improvement, companies that implement Kaizen have continually yielded superior results.
There are five fundamental Kaizen principles that are embedded in Kaizen tools and behaviors:
- Know your Customer
- Let it Flow
- Go to Gemba (understanding what is happening throughout your company)
- Empower People
- Be Transparent
Kaizen is about decreasing waste by eliminating overproduction, improving quality, being more efficient, having less idle time, and reducing unnecessary activities. All these translate to cost savings, and can turn potential losses into profits.
Other benefits of a Kaizen strategy:
- Simplifying Work Processes
- Improving Safety
- Improving Employee and Customer Satisfaction
