Oriel STAT A MATRIX’s Approach to Lean

Kaizen means “good change” in Japanese. It is a philosophy of eliminating waste by making small changes for the better. Kaizen or Lean Events are short-term projects with a specific improvement objective. During an event, a Lean expert leads a team as it analyzes and improves a process. Kaizen and Lean Events are flexible and have a high return on investment because the improvement is so rapid.

These events typically last for 4 to 10 days and generally include the following activities:

  • Lean training
  • Defining problem/goals
  • Observing and documenting the current state
  • Brainstorming and developing a future state
  • Implementation
  • Developing a follow-up plan
  • Presenting results
  • Celebrating success

Oriel STAT A MATRIX’s Lean consultants have facilitated hundreds of Kaizen and Lean Events ranging from manufacturing improvements to business process improvements. They will work with you to identify a problem suitable for a quick fix. A quick fix problem offers the opportunity to create rapid improvement in quality, cost, or timeliness through the elimination of waste. We then use our Lean Pathway model to help your organization determine the scope of the project and choose the appropriate Lean tools for the event.

Most importantly, our consultants will ensure your Kaizen or Lean Event provides your team a hands-on learning experience. Our goal is to use the event to convey practical knowledge and skills your team can apply in their jobs every day.

Classes are available as in-person or virtual instructor-led trainings. Select a course to learn more or to register.
