The first step to implementing kaizen in any organization is to provide training on the Toyota Production System (TPS). Author and Master Kaizen Sensei, Geoffrey Mika, provides this never-before documented training material and explains why the TPS tools, including kaizen, must work in tandem with a new way of thinking to bring about cultural change. Revised and expanded in its fifth edition, the manual has seen use in many industries for wide-ranging applications. It provides workers at all levels of an organization with a how-to guide for planning, organizing, and implementing kaizen events in any setting. Its hands-on presentation, complete with reusable charts and forms, will bring a level of competence and understanding to event teams and participants as they become self-sufficient in the application of kaizen.
