One of the goals our office has been pursuing is to introduce Lean Six Sigma, a management philosophy, to Kern County government. My colleagues and I voted to make our Lean Six Sigma aspiration into a county-wide goal and several departments have already begun training teams and evaluating and refining processes. One of the terms that comes up over and over and has a great deal of promise is “Kaizen.” It has the potential to benefit the County as an organization, but also our constituents who strive for personal and professional goals, as well.
Here’s a shareworthy video we found on YouTube explaining Kaizen with simple examples. Enjoy!
