Kaizen Prerequisites
Sylvia Grant, Consultant, Australia, Member
I believe self-discipline is a mandatory prerequisite before one can hope to achieve success with Kaizen, just as it is in martial arts. The focus and 'stillness' of thought required in martial arts helps with the implementation of Kaizen. What is your opinion?

Stillness of Thought as a Prerequisite for Kaizen
Gary Disley, Teacher, Australia, Member
Yes Sylvia, clear thinking and the ability to focus is more critical important in times of rapid change just as it is in martial arts..
Although in these times of constant change it might be a mistake to focus everything in one direction without providing strategies to continue to improve operational agility and flexibility to help navigate projects.
When you cite "stillness of thought" are you talking about 'reflection learning' or simply 'reinforce focus'?
