Kaizen Event

Kaizen Events are different from Kaizen, though the aim of both is to make a change for the better! Kaizen is a long-term business commitment and is about creating a culture of improvement amongst the team and making small changes which, over time, equate to a much larger overall change. A Kaizen Event is a short-term (3-5 days usually) initiative that has a pre-determined start and end point and involves a small team looking at a very specific thing. A Kaizen Event is a concentrated effort, focused on a specific process or area and has a small team charged with evaluating and looking for ways to improve it. In the same way that a large Kaizen initiative can be used to gain improvement suggestions from the team, a Kaizen Event can be an ideal opportunity to improve a particular process.

The most common goals of Kaizen Events are:

  • To gather a team of specialist operators, managers and owners of a process into one place at the same time
  • To map an existing process in its current state
  • To use the insight and expertise of the team to improve the existing process
  • To solicit buy-in from all parties involved in the process to improve it
