Kaizen is Japanese for "improvement." It is also the name of a widely used business improvement methodology/practice developed in Japan.
The Kaizen business improvement methodology revolves around a number of principles, namely:
- looking for ways to improve work processes on a regular basis.
- a emphasis on small, incremental changes rather than large changes.
- the involvement of all people within the organization in identifying possible improvement opportunities, not just managers and/or executives.
