How does "change" happen in your organization? Is it through major initiatives, or is it part of the ongoing way you work?
Kaizen, (Kai: change, Zen: good) Means Change for Betterment also known as continuous improvement, is a long-term approach to work that systematically seeks to achieve small, incremental changes in processes in order to improve efficiency and quality. Kaizen can be applied to any kind of work, but it is perhaps best known for being used in lean manufacturing and lean programming. If a work environment practices kaizen, continuous improvement is the responsibility of every worker, not just a selected few.
Developed in Japan after World War II, Kaizen business philosophy involves promoting constant improvement by monitoring business processes and making ongoing adjustments. Built on the Deming Cycle (plan, do, check/study and act), Kaizen philosophy can permeate all aspect of business culture in an organization committed to promoting its methods.
Streamlining and simplifying business processes can increase profit potential and improve workplace harmony.

Benefits from Kaizen?
Kaizen aims for improvements in productivity, effectiveness, safety, and waste reduction, and those who follow the approach often find a whole lot more in return:

• Unlocking the Human Potential
• Less waste – inventory is used more efficiently as are employee skills.
