Lean Manufacturing Kaizen Presentation

Continuous improvements using Kaizen boards

Continuous improvements towards perfection

The fifth principle in Lean is about creating a culture of continuous improvements.

The term "Kaizen" is used for continuous improvements. Kaizen comes from Japanese and means "change for the better".
