Description

How big is Kaizen?

Do you know that almost all FORTUNE 500 companies are using or had used Kaizen during their business growth curve? Be it FORD motor company which survived and recovered the rough times during Great recession of late 2000s, Herman Miller which enjoyed more than 500% increase in productivity and quality in its product and services with Kaizen or even aerospace technology company like Lockheed Martin during development of Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) system, Kaizen has always been in lead role. We also may have heard the stories how Canon and Toyota used Kaizen for improving productivity and quality. It is for this reason that Government sectors of many nations have also been largely interested in implementing this technique to improve public sectors.

What is Kaizen ?

· Kaizen is a japanese term (改善) which means to change and put back together in a better way. Kaizen is an all employee involvement strategy of eliminating the wastes from all the process and bring a culture of continuous improvement using lesser resources.

· In English definition, it means ‘Continuous Improvement’.

What not is Kaizen?

· Kaizen is not an organizational’s 'Get rich quick without effort' scheme. Although Kaizen Blitz helps in quick problem locating and solving, it really needs dedication, knowledge and effort to bring a great change to your personal and organizational growth.

· It’s not a Manager’s only job. Kaizen works best in overall participation.

· It’s not a one-time improvement policy. It’s a continuous improvement approach.

What is in this course for me?

This course is a step by step Kaizen Training platform for beginners and also for future professional Kaizen Practitioner aspirants. You get knowledge, skills and certification as a Kaizen Practitioner. The best part of the course is, it is an step by step approach starting from beginners to an expert level. It also lectures you with the use of  MINITAB and EXCEL  where necessary even if you have never used these software before. The first ‘Beginner’s level’ deals with introduction of Kaizen, it’s principles and ground rules, Kaizen procedure and benefits. In the intermediate level of difficulty you study about pillars of Kaizen involving lean tools like 5S, MUDA, MURA and MURI and about 8 kinds of wastes. Finally, you study in depth how to perform Kaizen with an organized lean PDCA pathway.

PDCA stands for Plan, Do, Check and Act.

In Plan phase of Kaizen, we select a Kaizen project with knowledge of who, when and where to implement Kaizen and also learn to perform the GEMBA walk. We select Key performance indicators and set SMART GOALS for our Kaizen project. Finally, we make an ACTION PLAN for our Kaizen project.

In Do Phase we collect and sample data and analyze the data with Checksheets, Histograms and Scatterplots, Control Charts etc with analysis tools such as Cause and Effect Diagram and Pareto Analysis etc. We will learn performing these analytical tasks using MINITAB and EXCEL.

In Check phase, we develop solutions using Benchmarking and Brainstorming, find the root cause of the problem with RCA (Root Cause Analysis), test the solutions and ensure if the goals are satisfied.

Finally, in the Act Phase, we implement and monitor the countermeasures with a notion of continuous improvement.

How do I really know that I have learned enough?

There are 3 ways to do so inside the course-

· By learning through Case Studies and Simulated Case Studies

· By checking your knowledge through other Quizzes
