The term “Kaizen” roughly translates into “change for better”. A Kaizen Event is a cross-functional working session designed to be an intensive 1 to 3 day focus on one specific area. It is used to quickly implement process improvements with focused working team involvement. A Kaizen Event can be a stand-alone working session or may be scheduled as part of a larger project.
The CI office facilitates these events to accomplish the following objectives:
- Make concrete improvements to an existing process.
- Bring new problem-solving skills to individuals on the working team.
- Build enthusiasm by achieving results quickly.
- Develop ownership for the solution through involvement.
Please contact our office with any questions or to schedule a cross-functional Kaizen Event.
