Kaizen Demystified provides five proven approaches to applying the principles and practices of the Toyota Production System (i.e., Lean) and Six Sigma in a systematic methodology to improve work processes. The five types of Kaizen Events detailed in this book are the: (1) Standard 5 Day Kaizen Event, also referred to as a Kaizen Blitz or Rapid Improvement Event, (2) Rolling Kaizen Event, (3) Web Based Kaizen Event, (4) Today’s Kaizen Event, and (5) Wiki (or Quick) Kaizen Event. Each type will be thoroughly explained to “demystify” what it may mean for you.
