How does change happen within your firm?
It is through several targeted initiatives or part of your everyday work?
Your firm’s success depends on your ability to constantly improve what you do and how you do it.
The Japanese call this ‘Kaizen’ – constant improvement.
The word translates to mean change (kai) for the good (zen).
Businesses that follow that Kaizen approach believe that everything can always be improved.
Your firm and the people within it all need to have an open ‘growth mindset’ for Kaizen to be present where there is never a period of status quo.
There must be continuous effort to improve, these can be small changes over time, which in the long term add up to larger change, or these can be one-off changes.
The Kaizen approach is at the heart of the Toyota Production system and has influenced many production processes throughout the world.
Embracing Kaizen in your firm’s culture means, despite challenges or difficulties, you can work out a solution by responding positively to any issues, learn new skills, improve existing skills, build new insights and master a better way for you and your firm.
