Kaizen is most often associated with manufacturing operations although it has been applied in other fields such as healthcare, education, government, banking, and supply chain procurement.
The Japanese word kaizen means "change for better," with the inherent meaning of either "continuous" or "philosophy." The word refers to any improvement, one-time or continuous, large or small, in the same sense as the English words continuous improvement.
Kaizen has grown from manufacturing roots to applications in the service industry and public sector. Since education is a continuous process where knowledge is developed, that resultant knowledge will serve for the betterment of both the individual and society. In this context, Kaizen is a key element to the very purpose of education. By absorbing the Kaizen concepts right from childhood, students will strive to achieve their best as they transition to adults.
Kamaljit Jackson will share with us her knowledge and experience in using Kaizen principles and philosophy in the education field. This is a different perspective from the traditional application of Kaizen.
