LEAN Work Culture Kaizen approach, The TOYOTA way The key to improve Performance Quality, Productivity And Profitability by involving People !!!
Context: In todays scenario of globalization and global warming, even World Class companies are struggling to survive while trying ways and means to be Planet friendly. They have not only been reshaping to overcome their own weaknesses and stretching to leverage strengths but also challenging strengths of their value chains. Every other workplace naturally needs to change drastically from their conventional management practices in order to become leaner (and leaner i.e. to on-goingly reduce inputs by half, enhance value to stakeholders by double). Who else can do this but their empowered employees? This itself is a big challenge. Managements are facing difficulties in changing mindsets of people to take the above challenges head-on. Deming award winner TOYOTA has shown the way long ago! Get all your associates Kaizen Conscious to build strength inherently in your organization. Only they can delight customer/s in the value chain, if they so wish. Kaizen is a Japanese word that literally means, Change for the Better. It stands for and implies making Continual Improvements in all walks of life. It may be relatively easy to understand technical dimension/s of Kaizen and Kaizen Tools such as JIT, 5-S, TPM, SMED, etc. But the most difficult part is soft dimension/s of Kaizen. Both blended together helps establishing the Kaizen culture that achieves a company's strategic objectives, otherwise it remains a Kaizen for names sake. This is exactly where the TOYOTA excels. Thats also the prime reason why it still reigns supreme. The Kaizen system diagnoses root cause/s of inefficient working in organizations. It offers a systematic approach to changing attitudes (mindset) of people, leading to miraculous organizational change. It not only helps in continuing to improve the performance of existing business lines through incremental innovations on products, processes, and costs but also tackles disruptive changes through breakthrough improvements. The legendary Mr. Peter Drucker has strongly advocated Kaizen-Culture in his article The New Society of Organizations in Harvard Business Review. The success of post war economic miracle in Japan is normally attributed to techniques such as JIT, TQM, KANBAN, Five-S, etc. But not any one of these can be accorded the credit, in absence of the single most important common factor, Kaizen system. Gaby Mendoza, in February92 World Executive Digest, wrote on the Secret of Toyotas success, where he refers to Kaizen as the Driver and Which must be installed first. Once Kaizen is installed, JIT, TQM, KANBAN, Five-S, TPM, Pokayoke, SMED, Quality Circles, QFD, Taguchi Techniques, SIX-SIGMA and even procedure oriented systems such as ISO 9000, ISO 14000, etc. can be introduced easily. Objectives: We often fail to implement any imported system because we tend to copy first, then struggle and give in rather than appreciate the principles underlying any such new system and then adopt it. This initiative will help understanding Kaizen system, the Concept, the Principles (both hard technical and the soft ones); its' interlink with series of management techniques mentioned above, along with the pitfalls in implementation. One can learn, how positive attitude can be manufactured, by looking at the wasteful practices in any workplace, continuously correcting them,

The introductory module, on day-1 generates awareness and teaches concepts needed to initiate action with commitment of Top & Senior management. Next 3 days focus on Action Cycle involving managers, staff & workers of a pilot cell/department and provide the skills needed. Each module features simple Kaizen tools that facilitate action in order to drive Instant Kaizen. The stress is on doing it now' rather than 'mere lip service'. Day-5 focuses on creating a recognition platform to 'sustain the gains and the motivation'. Concurrently, 'plan of action' is explained for Distant Kaizen.
