Kaizen Event (Formerly SWARM)


Kaizen is a proven, effective process to accelerate and improve business results. It cuts through bureaucracy and indecision while developing leaders who can mobilize others to extraordinary performance. In this activity, we facilitate a group of decision makers and contributors who are challenged by a real-world situation. The group utilizes our Kaizen process to study the situation, consider alternatives, decide what actions to take, and then build an implementation plan to start immediately following the Kaizen.

In an intensive three-day working session, a carefully selected group of leaders and other company resources come together to take bold action that produces dramatic business results - results that have immediate and near term impact.

During a 3 day Kaizen session, participants engage projects such as the following:

  • Assess Critical-to-Quality customer and stakeholder needs.
  • Translate the organization's top priorities into a well-defined set of improvement projects, targets, and action plans.
  • Receive go/no-go decisions from their senior leader on all proposed actions and projects: no waiting!
  • Organize the people, accountabilities, and follow-up systems to ensure that intended results are achieved and sustained.
  • Generate enthusiasm, excitement and ownership for creating action that is carried into the project execution phase and beyond.
  • Obtain the clarity of focus and authorization for action that delivers a step-change in performance within three months.
