In this video we teach kaizen from the humble coffee machine! True kaizen is not like the scheduled “kaizen events” that are commonly used in the United States. Instead, kaizen represents a mindset and culture of small incremental changes.
P.S. If you’re looking for the first lean tip video involving the coffee machine, check out Lean Tip 001 here.
Make lean 5S effective at work by teaching how to sweep (or shine) effectively. Thoughtful sweeping that includes inspection will eliminate root causes and waste. This is how you prevent mindless 5S programs!
