Process issues are inevitable in the workplace, which is why organizations invest in methods and tools with continuous improvement as focus. One of the most effective and preferred ways to do that is to conduct a Kaizen event. A Kaizen event is a process improvement approach undertaken by employees involved in a process issue. It covers ten steps aimed at resolving such issues with the end goal of improving productivity among employees. Here they are:

  • Determining the issue
  • Mapping out the current scenario
  • Visualizing the desired scenario
  • Setting achievable goals
  • Brainstorming of potential solutions to the issue
  • Laying down the Kaizen plan
  • Executing the plan
  • Analyzing, recording and comparing plan results vis-à-vis the goals
  • Preparing a summary
  • Creating an actionable plan to sustain initial efforts

 

There are many different topics a Kaizen event can revolve around, and these range from simple to complex, but those challenges are always resolved in a short time frame ( max 5 days).
