Kaizen Foundation Training



Course Overview

Kaizen is perhaps one of the most commonly used terms when it comes to process improvement methodologies. Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning “Change for the better” or “improvement”.  It originates from two Japanese words – “kai” which means “change” or “to correct” and “zen” which means “good”. It is most commonly translated into English as “Continuous Improvement”.   It works on the basis that nothing can ever become perfect, and there is always something that can be improved. It is used to bring about small, incremental improvements, which, if pursued for some time and in proper manner, compound to very significant results. It involves all the employees of the organization – from the top management as well as the bottom level.

Kaizen training is designed to help participants understand the basic principles of operational excellence, Kaizen tools, and techniques, as well as their practical application in the workplace. Kaizen tools seek to solve problems through scientific methods, based on teamwork. It is a daily improvement of all employees and all company operations.
