Kaizen is a Philosophy | Kaizen Background
David Bovis, Business Consultant, United Kingdom, Member
I am led to believe Kaizen is more of a philosophy than it is a management 'tool' - the description above may wish to include the definition of Kaizen as it is understood with a Taoist appreciation of mutual benefit "on-going goodness / benefit, no one person gaining at another's expense"
And to include the muri and mura aspects of waste in addition to the muda - i.e. to remove 'unevenness' and attain 'spiritual peace' - once these issues are addressed, the psychology that is inherent to historical theologies and philosophies can be overtly considered and understood as the founders of TPS (Editor: Toyota Production System) originally tried to portray across cultural boundaries - the current 'context' in which Kaizen as a philosophy is portrayed is testament to their failure to transfer meaning from east to west...
