Wanting to create a continuous improvement culture within your company? Looking for ways to instill continuous improvement mindset to all employees? Kaizen may be what you are looking for. Discover how Kaizen can help your organization to make continuous improvements and achieve desired outcomes such as reduction in cycle times, waste, cost along with improved throughput, productivity and quality.
Kaizen (改善), a Japanese term for continuous improvement, is the strategy for making continuous improvements in all business areas. Striving for excellence, always looking for ways to improve what already exists, and believing that one can impact change, is at the heart of the Kaizen spirit. The Kaizen Strategy calls for never-ending efforts for improvement involving everyone in the organisation. When the strategy is fully utilised, everyone in the organisation participates in making improvement in quality in all business areas. Reductions in cycle times, costs, and wastes, along with improved throughput, productivity and quality are achievable outcomes.
At the heart of Kaizen is the Shewhart Circle or Deming wheel that is more commonly known as the PDCA cycle (Plan, Do, Check, Act):
- Plan – Plan what needs to be done.
- Do – Take Action test the potential solution
- Check – Check if the potential solution worked
- Act – If the solution worked, implement it. If it doesn’t, repeat the PDCA cycle with a different plan.
