Review: Kaizen: The Key to Japan's Competitive Success

User Review  - Al - Goodreads

Imai was one of the original thinkers. Both Kaizen and Gemba Kaizen are great additions to any lean library. Read full review

About the author (1986)

More than any other business authority in the world, Masaaki Imai has championed the concept of kaizen over the past three decades in thought, word, and action. He is considered one of the leaders of the quality movement and a pioneer of modern business operational excellence. Mr. Imai is an international lecturer, consultant, and founder of the Kaizen Institute, a leading continuous improvement consultancy with offices worldwide. Mr. Imai's first book, "Kaizen"--translated into 14 languages--is the authoritative reference on the subject. In 2010 he was honored for his lifetime of achievement with the first ever Fellowship of Quality Council of India.
