Kaizen

Kaizen is a collection of simple principles for improving work and can thus be assigned to lean management. Kaizen comes from the Japanese and is composed of the terms Kai = change and Zen = for the better, meaning the permanent improvement of activities, processes, procedures or products by all employees of a company.

In comparison to Business Process Re-Engineering (BPR), which aims to implement radical changes in a short time, Kaizen describes the continuous improvement in small steps with the involvement of all employees.

The following principles are used:

  • daily improvements in all areas of a company
  • employee-oriented management
  • process orientation
  • introduction of quality management
  • avoid any waste of material, time and money
  • consider all downstream process steps as customers and improve performance on this basis
  •  improvements are always possible
  • continuous improvements are made on a small scale and step by step
  • no restrictions in terms of scope; products, services, processes, activities, technology, workplace - everything can be improved

The focus of Kaizen is on continuous quality improvement and cost reduction and is therefore seen as an integral part of quality management.
