Kaizen is a way of life. You should be doing daily improvement, but when a project is too big for an on-the-spot fix, use a kaizen event.
Make sure to use a kaizen checklist such as this one to avoid costly mistakes.
If you need help running your kaizen, or just want some assistance planning one, we can help. Our services range from hourly remote consulting on up to weeklong training and consulting sessions. Contact us at Info@Velaction.com or 1.425.939.1604 for more information.
