Question is Can we CHANGE faster then others?
If you don’t know WHERE YOU ARE/YOUR CURRENT STATE and you don’t know WHERE YOU WANT TO GO, your chances of getting to a place that meets your expectations/goals are minimal.
If you are planning a Kaizen/Lean manufacturing initiative or you are not pleased with the results of your Kaizen/Lean initiative its time to re-look at what has been done and CHANGE!
Kaizen is based on making little changes on a regular basis–always improving productivity, safety and effectiveness, and reducing waste. Kaizen Reduces Waste in areas such as inventory, waiting times, transportation, worker motion, employee’s skills, over production, excess quality and in processes. Kaizen Improves space utilization, product quality, use of capital, communications, production capacity and employee retention. Kaizen Provides immediate results. Instead of focusing on large, capital intensive improvements, Kaizen focuses on creative investments that continually solve large numbers of small problems.
Bad business ignores the sign of disaster.
Good business spots the sign of disaster and deals with them.
To conclude I would like to say that CHANGE IS THE NEED FOR AN HOUR, but this change is not easy. To implement these changes is not easy and to shed light on how Kaizen helps companies excel I have chosen this topic.
