Just like any other continuous improvement process, planning a Kaizen event requires thought, leadership and accurate data. A Kaizen event is a short-term event that is focused and intense, with the goal of process improvement. Even though improvement on a large scale is typically more attractive, small scale events and success are easier, faster, have lower risk and have limited effect. The true value comes with accumulated effect through smaller projects.
In the video, Dr. Mark Graban and Dr. Greg Jacobsen discuss how we can plan for Kaizen events.
