Kaizen is a Japanese word that means ‘continuous process improvement' in English ("The Art," n,.d.). The Kaizen strategy is based on the assumption that employees are the right people to determine improvement opportunities because they are constantly involved in implementing processes. The Kaizen strategy necessitates that everyone in the organization puts in never- ending efforts towards the improvement of current processes. It involves small continuous improvements and is aimed at a change for the better. It is about stimulating productivity improvement and seeing it as an ongoing process in the organization. It is a practice-based approach which prepares the grounds to create a culture of improvement. The Kaizen process can be seen as a way of life, or at the very least, a cultural approach towards quality improvement. Kaizen philosophy can be implemented by involving employees and having them effect improvements.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
