Lean Six Sigma Bursts — E36: Two main types of kaizen or kaikaku events

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.
