When to Kaizen: Events Versus Workshops

For some, Kaizen events are the definitive format for Lean process improvements. I’ve had serious Lean instructors say things like “you should be doing Kaizen events all the time” and “all Kaizen events should be five days long.” I’ve had some very different experiences and wanted to compile my thoughts on the topic.

The Municipal Research and Services and Center was interested in my ideas and posted the essay on their blog. I hope you find my ideas interesting — and I hope you share your thoughts and feedback.
