Toyota Kaizen

2 second improvement everyday

I first heard about the Toyota Kaizen practice in about 2018, and quickly interpreted it to mean marginal gains or continuous improvement, methodologies I closely believe in. I then learnt that the English translation is, broadly speaking, continuous improvement. ‘Kai’ means ‘change’ and ‘zen’ means ‘for the better’. So a good start for me.

Kaizen improvements in standardised work help maximise productivity at every worksite for Toyota, and standardised work involves following procedures consistently and therefore employees can identify the problems promptly.
