The Kaizen Checklist is here!

Do you want to get better results from your Kaizen programme?

Improve your business results quickly with my downloadable kit (including guidebook, workbook and templates) for only $39.



Are you looking for a sustainable way to identify and implement improvements across your business?

Practical improvement strategies
The Kaizen Checklist is a downloadable kit that you can use with your management team to develop a system that suits your business and allow you to quickly implement Kaizen effectively at your place of work. This works great if you use it as the centre piece of your own internal workshop.

The kit includes a 40 page guidebook, a workbook, four appendices and three templates. All parts of this kit are designed to get you up and running as fast as possible.

If you are unfamiliar with Kaizen, let me stress that this is a simple improvement philosophy that is so much more than just  ‘a Japanese word for continuous improvement’. I’ll cover what it really is in the guidebook.




Wide range of ideas to boost Kaizen implementation
The truth is that many Kaizen programmes fail and I am often called into companies to help them develop a sustainable system. The guidebook covers the same points that I cover when I work with teams during my management workshops. The accompanying workbook, appendices and templates are designed to help you get the similar results as fast as possible.

The key to a good Kaizen system is to consider a range of points that will help you design an effective and efficient way of working that suits your business. The thrust of this kit is guidance through a number of considerations that will allow you decide exactly what will deliver results for your business. I will also share with your some of the common pitfalls around Kaizen systems and how you can avoid them.

The Kaizen Checklist is for you if:
  • You want to get the most out of your teams and eliminate the ‘untapped human potential’ waste.
  • Want a continuous stream of improvement opportunities for your business.
  • Are looking to create a system that identifies and manages your Kaizen / continuous improvement ideas

Integrate Kaizen with other management systems
If you’ve been around Kaizen as long as I have you’ll realise that there isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ approach, this kit will let you tailor an approach that works for you.

Also, I offer a full money back guarantee if this isn’t for you. If you buy the Kaizen Checklist and you are unable to get value from it just get in touch and I’ll organise a full refund.

I wish you all the best.

Take the pressure off! Using the Y-curve with your Kaizen improvements

Do you feel under pressure when you have to make changes happen in your business? It can be scary when we try something that we have never done before. I remember thinking to myself 'how on Earth am I going to figure this out?' on many occasions. I think the last time was a few weeks ago! Years on from becoming reasonable at the art of change I am still faced with the same dilemma. It is scary and it is clear to me why so many people shy away from making change happen. It is natural to get stuck in this oscillation. On one hand you need to make change happen; the business needs the improvement benefits. On the other hand you don't want to screw up... Last week I was talking to a young engineer that I am mentoring. He was paralysed. Changes were not happening at all. There was always some early promise with his projects and then, as completion (and judgement day) loomed, progress would evaporate. The engineer asked me for my views on this  during a recent conversati

Kamishibai Boards

Available to purchase here. Some tools are incredibly simple to use, and also deliver some amazing results. Kamishibai boards are a great example and are superb when you want some visual control over routine tasks. By the way Kamishibai is pronounced "come-e-she-bye" in case you were wondering! As simple as you could want it, a Kamishibai board is a T-card system that has red cards glued to green cards (so that each T-card has a red side and a green side). The red cards are for the incomplete tasks, where as the green cards symbolise that the work has been done. See the photo below of a board in use. On the red side of the card you write the name of the task that needs to be completed, and if appropriate you can include details of how the task is to be completed. This is not expected to replace standard operating procedures, but can be a good opportunity for an aide memoire. The boards can be organised for daily, weekly and even monthly cycles. They are g
