When describing the methodology of a kaizen or kaikaku event, I often break it up into two main types:
- Working session – traditional approach where 80% of the work is implemented during the 2-5 day event
- Planning session – process mapping approach where the team generates a 90-day action plan during the 2-5 day event
I explain the differences and when to use each type, along with describing how projects and point kaizen (or kaizen blitz/burst activities) fit within these activities.
