Quick Take ◾ Kaizen is a practice best learned by doing. ◾ The five steps of the Kaizen process are to find, discuss, implement, document,

and share improvement ideas. ◾ Quick and Easy Kaizen ideas are those that are quick and easy to test,

implement, and review. ◾ Kaizen ideas can come from employees who are in their first week of work,

if the culture encourages and allows it. ◾ Visual Idea Boards help make the entire improvement process visible and

transparent to all who are involved-a major improvement over traditional suggestion boxes.
