In Pursuit of Customer Satisfaction and Profits

A study of successful companies will invariably show that they have developed a culture of gradual, continuous improvement. This culture provides the basis for change initiative implementation success that helps companies reach their full growth and profit potentials.

The Japanese call it kaizen - a management culture of gradual, continuous improvement. We describe it as "a tenacious focus on quick-hitting, process improvements." 

Kaizen provides a foundation for exceeding
goals and expectations and improving
your company's competitive edge?

When is come to overcoming objections, eliminating roadblocks, and pro-active problem solving, kaizen event training is a primary requisite. How else does an organization solve these common problems:

1. Increase team contribution to the company's "bottom line
4. Increase speed, improve quality and reduce costs
. Gain control of inventories and optimize their turnover  
5. Improve customer responsiveness and satisfaction
6. Bullet-proof continuous improvements
7. Creating a fun working environment
8. Reduce work place stress

Kaizen Event "On-the-Job" Training Program

 A Kaizen Event Project: Project selection, problem solving, goal setting and results assessment... all aimed at the transfer of the kaizen know-ledge and implementation skills.

Kaizen Event "On-the-Job" Training
by Enrique Mora

Compared to many other kaizen coaches, Enrique avoids a general, philosophical approach. Rather he aims to be intensely practical, providing proven, actionable, "how-to" information to individuals and organizations that need to optimize their continuous improvement results in order to reach their full growth and earning potentials.

Kaizen knowledge and implementation skills

The majority of Enrique's program is carried out in the factory. Most
of his kaizen event knowledge and implementation "know-how" transfer is
done at employees' work place. Class room training is limited to gaining a project commitment, team dynamics and workshop exercises.

 It's the "how to" that really counts! One of our customers saying it better than we can:

"Enrique's training is focused on the "how to." Unlike other pro-grams that tell you only what you need to do... Enrique's training presents what you need to do and then he shows you how to do it."                                       
                                                    T.J. Imholte, VP Operations,
                                              Advanced Storage Products, Inc.

Kaizen Event Training Program: A Get Acquainted Meeting

Congratulations, if you have read this far, you are an excellent candidate for a Kaizen Event Training Program. A pre-event meeting is necessary to assure that there is mutual understanding and agreement about:

1. The structure and objective of your 5-day program

2. The level of involvement and commitment required

3. Team members' roles, expectations and selection

4. Performance recognition and acknowledgement.

Our preference is to meet with the CEO and Operations executives at the factory site where the proposed Kaizen Event Training Program would take place. A morning "get acquainted" meeting and plant tour is usually sufficient to cover the above subjects and establish mutual understanding of the event's objectives and expectations. If agreement is reached and the event is approved, a time schedule is established.

If the factory site is in Southern California or the Mid-West, there is no charge for the meeting. If it is outside of both, we ask that potential clients budget for travel expenses. 

Don't miss out, our availability is limited...
take your action today!
