This is a self-guided learning program to help you learn how to plan and execute kaizen projects.

Kaizen, loosely translated, means change for the better. That would include daily improvements, small projects, kaizen events, and major changes.

This series primarily covers kaizen events. Keep in mind that successful kaizen events will require leadership, problem solving, Lean tools, and more. In the interest of keeping focus, we've left those topics out of this series and presume you will look at other learning tracks for more information.
