The power of kaizen
The Japanese philosophy of kaizen, which encapsulates a culture of constant improvement, is a powerful force in the business world.
Kaizen asks employees to question what they are doing in order to find new and better ways of doing things. It could mean creating a component using fewer materials, changing a production layout to boost efficiency, or finding a new approach to solving a challenge. Small changes add up to big gains. And these result in a faster, leaner and more efficient world of shorter production times, lower inventory levels and reduced costs.
In today’s fast-changing world, manufacturers in every industry need to adopt a mindset that enables them to react quickly, intelligently and creatively to an evolving market. This is kaizen at work.
