Description

Kaizen is a continuous improvement business programme from Japan that aims to boost organizational effectiveness and efficiency. This methodology has spread worldwide, and many companies have successfully adopted it. While Kaizen is not the international standard, it has proven useful, so this course brings together the perspectives of various industry experts to demonstrate how to make constructive cultural places at your place of work.

The course begins by examining Kaizen and laying out its definition, history, driving principles and so on. We then navigate the ‘plan-do-check-act’ (PDCA) approach to drive Kaizen improvements. We cover the ‘three Ms’: ‘muri’ (overburden), ‘mura’ (unevenness) and ‘muda’ (waste). The course then moves on to other major Kaizen concepts, such as its events, cycle and systems, which include ‘Gemba Kaizen’, its implementation programme, stories and so on.

Lastly, we clear up the widespread confusion among professionals related to ‘continuous improvement’ versus ‘continual improvement’. We establish the importance of monitoring Kaizen improvement programmes through events and discuss how to manage that responsibility. Take this course to gain valuable skills that will help you implement cultural change in your organization through the application of Kaizen principles and methods.
