Kaizen events are focused improvement activities designed to improve a specific process or work area. The primary focus is on identifying and eliminating waste and unnecessary non-value-added activities. This leads to tangible enhancements in quality, efficiency, delivery, cost saving, system standardization and employee engagement. Think of a Kaizen event as a continuous improvement activity at the micro level as opposed to some of the other large-scale efforts such as Lean and Six Sigma.
