    This idea of “small jobs” was taken from a Japense word named “kaizen.” Kaizen is the concept of continual improvement with so-called kaizen events being times where an entire factory pulls together to improve the process though the phrase is often mis-used to mean a time when the factory utilizes every team member to complete a project which is behind. If you’ve ever heard the terms Six Sigma or Total Quality Management, they are based upon this concept of kaizen.

    Can you tell I do process improvement for a living?
