How to Run a Successful Kaizen Event
Kaizen is a Japanese term, which literally means, “change for better”. In Lean manufacturing, a Kaizen event is a process of finding and solving problems by creating a team of individuals to work intensively on the problem over a short period of time.
Join us for a lunch-n-learn event to:


Discuss the basic steps of a Kaizen event from defining the charter to report out.


Participate in or observe a hands-on demonstration of a Kaizen event in action.


Discover how you can use Kaizen events in your facility to reduce waste and solve problems.


Learn how you can encourage employees from different departments to work together for improved efficiency and morale.


Event includes lunch, networking, presentation, case study, and Q&A.
