    • Kaizen has three main principles:
    • • Consider the process and the results! • The need to look at the entire process of the job at hand and to evaluate the job as to the best way to get the job done . • Kaizen must be approached in such a way that no one is blamed and that the best process is put into place.
  • FEATURES OF KAIZEN
