The proven methods presented in this book will dramatically increase your chances of success in implementing a KAIZEN™ culture by closing the biggest gaps in the correct understanding of what KAIZEN™ Culture is and why we need it.
Based on more than 50 years of combined experience, this book provides a detailed and illustrated road map to organised KAIZEN™ implementation through KAIZEN™ events.

Strat to Action
The KAIZEN™ method for turning Strategy into Action
In most organisations there is a huge gap in converting the strategy into action, compromising the achievement of economic and financial performance of excellence and, consequently, sustained growth in the long term.
This book describes the journey of a company over a three-year period, which evolves from poor performance to high levels of growth and profitability, using the KAIZEN™ Management Model. Throughout the several chapters, the application of the Strat to Action methodology, based on the Japanese concept Hoshin Kanri, is presented.
Strat to Action turns strategy into action, challenging and preparing companies for the future, through methodical management focused on process improvement, commitment from leaders and accountability of all people involved.
Reading this book will allow the reader to understand Hoshin’s potential in organisational transformation and growth year after year.
