In this week’s article, we are going to address KAIZEN, a Japanese philosophy aimed at continuous improvement in all dimensions of people’s lives, whether family, social, personal or professional. “Today better than yesterday, tomorrow better than today”.
Applied to the business world, the KAIZEN methodology of continuous improvement argues that no day should be spent in the company without any kind of improvement being made, either in the organizational structure or in worker’s life. This why KAIZEN has gained global notoriety for being a management system that generates excellent results, allowing companies to reduce costs and increase the productivity of their employees, thereby increasing their profitability.
“KAIZEN means improvement. It also means continuous improvement in personal life, domestic life, social life and working live. When applied to the workplace, KAIZEN means continuous improvement involving everyone” (Masaaki Imai – father of KAIZEN methodology).
