Kaizen Planning and Chartering (Training Module Video)
This video is a narrated PowerPoint presentation from our Lean Training System. It covers how to properly plan and charter a kaizen event. It addresses the use of our kaizen calendar and our kaizen charter form.
Our kaizen event checklist provides you a highly detailed tool to ensure you do not miss a single step when planning and running your continuous improvement project. This checklist covers the 4 weeks preceding the event, the project itself, and follow-up.
An effective problem statement for your project will keep you focused. It will also help you 'sell' the need for the project to acquire resources.
This video uses the kaizen charter as its backdrop, but the lesson is the same for A3 Reports or other problem solving projects.
