John answers:

“Kaizen (Japanese for “improvement” or “change for the

better”) refers to philosophy or practices that focus upon

continuous improvement of processes in manufacturing,

engineering, supporting business processes, and

management. It has been applied in healthcare[1],

government, banking, and many other industries. When used

in the business sense and applied to the workplace, kaizen

refers to activities that continually improve all functions, and

involves all employees from the CEO to the assembly line

workers. It also applies to processes, such as purchasing and

logistics, that cross organizational boundaries into the supply

chain.[2] By improving standardized activities and processes,

kaizen aims to eliminate waste (see lean manufacturing).

Kaizen was first implemented in several Japanese

businesses after the Second World War, influenced in part by

American business and quality management teachers who

Mandy asks…

Total quality management and kaizen?

TQM is changing employee’s attitudes so that they try to achieve high quality in every aspect of their jobs. it involves an expensive training programme and setting up Quality circles. are these quality circles called kaizen or is kaizen something totaly different?
Thank you

John answers:

You are correct in your statement about changing an employees attitude. It is known as “culture change”. Before a company can successfully implement any quality management system, there has to be culture change. I use 5S as a tool to get people motivated and start the change. 5S is also a good tool that lets me kow if an organization is going to struggle with the implementing and sustaining of the QMS. If they struggle with something as simple as 5S, they will have a hard time committing to a true qms, and the 5th S is sustain. Kaizen is a japanese term for continuous improvement, ( a good book is GEMBA KAIZEN) but it can also be used as a tool in any qms. As in the newer version of ISO 9000 there is an emphasis and clause for continuous improvement. With all Quality Management Systems, education and knowledge is key. As the great Dr. Edwards Deming said…..”knowledge is everything”. The basic knowledge that has to be absorbed is the knowledge of your current system or method. An organization may think they know what they are doing but in reality have no idea, and cannot improve, if they have not mapped their process, written procedures and developed a true system. Once this ystem is established, then the process can be monitored and changed for the better. That last thing I will say that is with all systems, there has to be a way to measure the performance.
