About this title:

Synopsis: Kaizen is a system of continuous improvement: an industrial philosophy that embraces absolutely everyone within the company culture. The goal is in maintaining constant improvement towards productivity, quality, safety, waste reduction, and leadership. A vast continuous flow of tiny constructive ideas will invariably make a huge differences in aggregate. And the process never stops...

Kaizen is the key element in the Japanese miracle taping into the creative abilities of every single person in the organization. When understood and appreciated by management, people will joyfully participate to make their work easier, more interesting and build their skills and capabilities.

Gulfstream Corporation in one of their plants in 2009 obtained 40 implemented ideas per employee, both enriching the working lives of their employees and saving millions of dollars. Autoliv in Ogden, Utah is asking each of their employees, in 2010, to submit 96 ideas.

The Kaizen process is simple. Just ask people to look around their work area and identify small problems, come up with possible solutions, present them to their managers and implement them on their own. It is powerful. It works very well.

About the Author: Bunji Tozawa is the president of the Japan Human Relations Association and the author of over 25 books in Japanese on Kaizen. He is also the co-author of The Idea Generator published in 2001. He is the world's leading authority on Kaizen, teaching the concepts for over 25 years to thousands of students.

Norman Bodek was the owner of Productivity Inc. - Press, publishing over 200 books on productivity and quality including the works of Dr. Shigeo Shingo and Taiichi Ohno, co-creators of the Toyota Production System (JIT - Lean). He is also the author of Kaikaku the Power and Magic of Lean and the co-author of The Idea Generator, Rebirth of American Industry, and All You Gotta Do is Ask.

Norman has written hundreds of articles on Japanese management, been to Japan 75 times, keynoted numerous conferences, taught Kaizen to many organizations and is now an adjunct professor of management at Portland State University.
