Our integrated KAIZEN™ Change Model

Breakthrough results are achieved using a variety of learning-by-doing methods including kaizen events, value stream design workshops and professionally managed Lean projects. The Kaizen Institute focus is on "helping you to help yourself" through knowledge transfer. We empower your people to implement improvements themselves, while working with leaders to build systems to sustain continuous improvement culture.

The true meaning of kaizen is improving everybody, every day, everywhere. We enable this by helping clients design and build their kaizen systems:

  • Daily KAIZEN™ programs train and motivate people to identify and solve problems to establish the KAIZEN™ culture and a team-focused environment.
  • Leaders KAIZEN™ programs coach management how to lead KAIZEN™ by example. This key enabler has the most significant impact on cultivating a strong culture of continuous improvement.
  • Support KAIZEN™ programs use proper policy deployment and monitor all activities for their progress towards achieving the strategic goals.
  • Project KAIZEN™ programs aim to improve processes, productivity, equipment effectiveness, safety and the quality of products and services.
  • Capability Development and Certification through our academy training at your premises.
