A Kaizen a Day at Royal Oak

A Kaizen a Day at Royal Oak

Beaumont Health-Royal Oak’s continuous improvement program puts an emphasis on developing “kaizen”—process improvement ideas generated by every employee in the system.

The practice of “kaizen,” or continuous process improvement, began as post WWII Japanese industry sought to improve its efficiency. A chief feature of kaizen programs is the idea that improvements come from continual experimentation with process changes  and ongoing suggestions for them from grass-root worker suggestions.
