Description of the Template and Guide
A kaizen event, also known as a kaizen blitz or lean event, is a 4-hour to multiple-day working session aimed to remove process “wastes”. Wastes include over-production, over-processing, lost time, defective products, poor service, extra inventory, information gaps, poor ergonomics, and untapped employee abilities. All improvements are aimed to make the product or service deliver more value to customers.
Use this meeting agenda template to set up and help guide your team through your next kaizen event.
