the kaizen facilitator how to manage a kaizen event for maximum results and effective organizational change Reviews
Good little bookGreat introduction to kaizen events, there strengths and weaknesses and how to problem. Excellent easy to follow case studies aid the learning.
Was not a fan. Maybe I missed something. I am not a Lean purist that feels there are hard lines between lean and other improvement methods (6 sigma & TOC) and that one is vastly superior to another, but Kaizen as taught by authors outside of the business world such as Dr. Robert Maurer means small incremental changes. This thought was never mentioned in the book or if it was it was so brief that it got swallowed up. The book is called "Kaizen Event" yet over half the book is discussing 6 sigma tools. Maybe it's narrow mindedness but I consider Kaizen - Lean not TOC, not 6 sigma. I very much would have preferred if the author called this "Improvement Event" as I frequently use statistics, just not during kaizen.I understand in the business world being able to demonstrate results is the lifeline to the company and the author does a good job of providing some quick ways to relay results. I really liked the impact that TOC had on the author. I think it is a concept that helps level scheduling and can be used in improving flow.Final piece that bothered me. The author ended with two case studies. In the first one he discusses implementing conveyor lines. Almost never will I consider automation kaizen. I forget the exact words but to paraphrase to automate waste isn't the same as getting rid of it.
