In this workshop you will learn how to think of and realize real improvements in a structured and creative way.
We cover the six steps of Kaizen: 1) Identify improvement opportunities, 2) Analyze the current standard, 3) Come up with original ideas, 4) Come up with a proposal, 5) Implement the proposal, 6) Evaluate the new standard
We do this based on one or more concrete issues from your own organization.
In this workshop, on day 1 we will cover the introduction to Kaizen and go through steps 1 and 2. The second step involves analyzing the current standard. Techniques used in this process include the following:
On day 2, we cover steps 3 through 6. The third step of kaizen is all about combining again, but differently, the elements of work that Step 2 exposed. Creative techniques used in this process include the following:
As opposed to a workshop that teaches you more about how to perform a Kaizen, you can also choose to be guided by us in performing a
Kaizen Event or Kaizen improvement week. In that case we will guide and coach you and your team during one or more Kaizens you will perform in your organization. Read more about Kaizen Events.
We provide the Kaizen workshop only in-company (minimum 6 to maximum 8 participants per group), so if you have other wishes regarding the days or the content of the program, this is of course possible. Please contact us to discuss your wishes and the price.
