Kaizen Events


Course Overview:  Kaizen is the continuous improvement of an entire Value Stream or an individual process to create more value with less waste.  Kaizen is meant to make work easier and more interesting, to build skills and capabilities, and to lead to organizational engagement, learning, and growth.  Its effectiveness is a pre-requisite for Lean transformation success.
