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.

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.

Where to start with Kaizen, if you just aren't sure

Kaizen is a great word. It is a word that can unleash the potential of both a business and an individual. Kaizen means more than just continuous improvement. It is a word that is linked to: Confidence Growth Exploration Courage Many people I speak to, that are new to improvement projects, aren't sure if they are on the right path when it comes to embracing the spirit of Kaizen. If you are also one of these people then let me share with you a few thoughts that can help you feel at ease about starting and leading change. Start with your concerns A great place to start your improvement life is with anything that isn't right. Getting your concerns out into the open really is the first step for most of us. If you aren't happy with something, raise it. This isn't only a great place to start, but something that you shouldn't give up. Whenever a standard is not being met, or not even defined, get vocal and then do something about it. Start small The intention of Kaizen is

Stimulating Kaizen opportunities - the 'mechanical' way!

I often end up in conversations about how to stimulate Kaizen ideas and opportunities. If you have read my other posts, you will know that I split the improvement journey into two halves. For many people, the initial Kaizen focus is all around fixing things that are wrong / not working properly. Once you get past this point you need something else to focus and motivate you to generate improvement opportunities. The two halves of the Kaizen journey The discussion that I often end up in, is the one around the imagination quandary. People talk to me about not being creative, or not being inspired to come up with improvement ideas. Do you ever feel this way? It seems that there is a popular view that some people are creative and some aren't. Great Kaizen ideas are not just the product of 'creative' people. There are lots of ways that you can generate improvement ideas without having to sit on a mountain top cross legged waiting for inspiration. Finding a 'mechanical' w
