Agile implementation. Tangible Results.

HOW TO CHANGE JUST A LITTLE AND IMPROVE A LOT?

Kaizen means “change to improve”. It is a central part of the Lean philosophy and affirms that with small continuous and positive changes it is possible to attain major goals.

 

This approach was the key to toyotism and helped reduce defects, eliminate waste, increase productivity, encourage the purpose and responsibility of workers and promote innovation.

 

The method, of simple, concrete actions that involve the entire organization, is still valid. In times of crisis, achieving efficiency and at the same time managing quality are essential for organizational evolution.
