  • Scrum is about continuous improvement among other things.
     
    When discussing continuous improvement many think about Kaizen. In this presentation you will get the opportunity to discuss Kaizen and Kaikaku, another Lean approach to improvement, their suitability, benefits, and pitfalls.
  • This is what I intend for us to cover today.
  • We’ll take a quick look at Continuous Imrovement to cover the basics like:
    Different Types
    Prerequisites
    Kaikaku
    Kaizen
    How to use Hansei to strenghten continuous improvement
  • There are different types of Continuous Improvement.
    Can you help me list a couple?
    Kaikaku
    Kaizen
    Retrospectives (team based)
  • Mention that continuous improvement is strongly connected to learning organizations. To become a truly learning organization you need to continuously improve.
    Mention the characteristics of a learning organization
    Mention obstacles to learning:
    Silo thinking
    No time for reflection
    No compelling long-term-vision
    Apathy
    Problem denial
    Leaders don’t value learning
    No systematic framework for learning
  • Kaizen (改善?), Japanese for "improvement", or "change for the better" refers to philosophy or practices that focus upon continuous improvement of processes in manufacturing, engineering, game development, and business management.
  • Hansei (反省?, "self-reflection") is a central idea in Japanese culture. Its meaning is to acknowledge your own mistake and to pledge improvement. (Similar to the German proverb "Selbsterkenntnis ist der erste Schritt zur Besserung" where the closest translation would be "Self-awareness is the first step to improvement").
  • Short summary of Continuous Improvement
  • Kaizen
    Connections
  • The Hansei Attitude
    Mastery requires careful observation and reflection
    To get better at what we do, we must build observation and reflection into everything we do
    It is not DOING that is the hard problem, it is SEEING the world correctly
    Reflection yields intellectual LEVERAGE
  • Organizational Learning
    The basic moves
    Observe
    Capture
    Reflect
    Solve
  • Kaizen
    Conclusion

    Benefits of Kaizen
    Systematic organizational learning
    An opportunity to get better at how to get better
    Improved business performance
    Develop people through improved critical thinking skills
    Improved motivation
    Improved clarity – connect strategy with execution challenges
  • Kaikaku (Japanese for "radical change") is about making fundamental and radical changes to a production system, unlike Kaizen which is focused on incremental minor changes. Both Kaizen and Kaikaku can be applied to activities other than production.

    Kaikaku is sometimes used as a precursor to Kaizen activities. Kaizen is essential for a long-term Lean transformation.

    Kaikaku is a lean production term that means radical change, transformation, a revolution. It means radical overhaul of an activity to eliminate all waste (muda in Japanese) and create greater value. It is a rapid and radical change process.

    Kaikaku is a breakthrough rapid and radical improvement, of any activity, It is similar to radical innovation, though innovation is not necessary for Kaikaku.

    Kaikaku is also known as Breakthrough Kaizen, Kaizen Blitz, Flow Kaizen and System Kaizen.

    Kaikaku is necessary to break paradigms and elevate the awareness of people to a higher level of understanding. When approaching a problem situation, it might require radical improvement to start with (Kaikaku), then be continuously improved (Kaizen)..

    Without Kaizen you are building Kaikaku on sandy foundations. And vice versa.

  • Throw out the traditional concept of manufacturing methods.
    Think about how the new method will work, not how it won't work.
    Don't accept excuses; totally deny the status quo.
    Don't seek perfection; a 50% implementation rate is fine as long as it's done on the spot.
    Correct mistakes the moment they are found.
    Don't spend money on Kaikaku.
    Problems give you a chance to use your brains.
    Ask "Why" five times.
    Ten person's ideas are better than one person's knowledge.
    Kaikaku knows no limits.

  • Kaikaku is sought in addition to Kaizen, not in place of Kaizen.

    Kaikaku is a rapid change event as opposed to Kaizen which is smaller incremental improvements. Kaikaku is revolutionary while Kaizen is evolutionary.

    Kaikaku sometimes used as a precursor to Kaizen activities. Kaizen is essential for a long-term Lean transformation.

    • 6. Learning organizations [are] organizations where people continually expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire, where new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, where collective aspiration is set free, and where people are continually learning to see the whole together. (Senge 1990)

Even if something is working, try to find the ways to make it work even better • See problem solving as cross-functional systematic and collaborative approach.
