Kaizen events are short duration improvement projects with a specific aim for improvement; typically they are week long events led by a facilitator with the implementation team being predominantly members of the area in which the kaizen event is being conducted plus a few additional people from support areas and even management.
Whether your team is in need of a new, specialized piece of software to help streamline your processes, or are simply needing to remove waste in daily tasks, a Kaizen event is the foundation on which to build. Through Kaizen, we’ll use Lean and Six Sigma tools and principles to effectively understand current process baselines, identify ideal future states, and develop actionable implementation plans to achieve that future state.
This approach to continuous improvement allows each team member to have involvement in the desired improvements, while giving them the tools to “see” future improvement opportunities. Furthermore, the DMAIC process ensures that we not only effectively improve the process, but also control it to ensure it does not revert to the “old way.”
Tired of doing things "the way we've always done it?"
Seen here, a Value Stream Map is one such tool that is used to not only map out your current process, but also to make all waste in the process visible for easy elimination.
During your team’s Kaizen Event, you’ll learn about 8W – The 8 Forms of Waste, how to identify them in your process and in other areas of your work, and most importantly – how to eliminate them.
Your team will “Learn to See” Waste. They will leave the event with a new mindset, and eyes that now easily identify waste in all areas of life!

"This is the way we've always done it" is useless.
