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.

Stop firefighting, start performing!

Another weeks passes and another example of unnecessary fire fighting demonstrated by a business I have been to help. If you have this taking place in your business, let me ask you a few questions: 1. What keeps on happening? Regain control with this practical book Can you pin down what it is that you keep having to do, to get out of trouble? If you can't, is there a pattern you can observe? 2. Do you want it to stop? Is it causing you enough of a problem that you want it to stop? If the answer is yes, keep reading, if not park it for another day. 3. Find out what is going on Do you know why you are having this issue? If you aren't sure where the issue is arising from, then take a few minutes to have a look around. When you have some idea, go to the next step. 4. Cause and effect Do you know what is truly causing the fire fighting situation? If you spend the time to get to the root cause of the situation , you have a good chance of permanently eliminating this situation. Most p

Kaizen improvements need to be specific

Do you find that your Kaizen improvements don't always go to plan? If you do, then you're with the majority! Whilst there is great deal of 'trial and error' there is a simple approach that can help. Available from Amazon Being specific about critical parts of your improvement can uplift your results. So, how do you go about doing this? The most direct route is to be clear about which parts of your improvement are critical. From here you can explain, in detail, what you want for those items. This might take some practice as many of us have become lazy in this regard. We take it for granted that our team 'get us' and will know what they need to do. If you ever feel that something basic is missing from an improvement ask this question: "What does good look like?" The answer should put you back on track.

Are your teams clear?

I have recently finished working with a team that were struggling. They were struggling to meet their production schedules. They were struggling to respond to customer enquiries on time. They were burnt out and frazzled. After some prodding and poking it became clear what their issues were. In particular, it became obvious that expectations of the team weren't clear or defined. Defining what you expect from teams is a standard management approach. The problem with most teams is that leadership describe the standards in vague terms . So, what happens if you get the standards crystal clear? You should expect to see the team produce the right outputs. They should produce the outputs at the right time. And, they should produce them in an agreed way. Be clear with your teams. Ask the question: What does good look like? If you want to get some more ideas on how to define effective standards and visions, get your copy of my book today . What does good look like? is a practical guide to h
