Continuous Improvement

May 2nd, 2011

Kaizen, an ongoing commitment to continuous improvement.

[From Wikipedia] The cycle of kaizen activity can be defined as:

  • Standardize an operation
  • Measure the standardized operation (find cycle time and amount of in-process inventory)
  • Gauge measurements against requirements
  • Innovate to meet requirements and increase productivity
  • Standardize the new, improved operations
  • Continue cycle¬†ad infinitum

This is the standard business model.

It’s worth acknowledging that everything has a need for continuous improvement, constant maintenance, growth, nurturing.

The idea that you can set & forget doesn’t make any sense, especially in a technology driven world. ¬†Embrace it.
