Kaizen event

Kaizen events are a five-days workshops run by a designated team and intended to the quick implementation of a Lean tool in a company’s specific area. The team objectives are to analyse a real process, identify its inefficiencies and propose ideas to improve it, acomplishing as many improvement actions as possible during the workshop. Pending solutions are gathered in a plan for later evaluation and implementation.
