KAIZEN™ Training

The Kaizen Institute is dedicated to enabling continuous improvement by developing Lean leaders and Kaizen practitioners. Our Lean training courses have been refined through delivery to tens of thousands of people worldwide based on our organisational expertise gained during more than 32 years.

Kaizen Institute New Zealand training is focused on a blend of short practical courses delivered mainly in-house for organisations. These are valuable building blocks to enable organisational excellence by equipping senior leaders, middle management, keys staff members, and business improvement specialists.

Our hands-on learning applies the KAIZEN™ approach to real situations in your organisation resulting in deeper learning and immediate improvements. Personal interaction with our highly skilled and qualified coaches results in relevant learning, supporting the transformation of people's habits in the workplace. We cater for small groups but also accommodate larger groups. Pleasecontact us to discuss your situation and requirements.
