Kaizen Mindset


Everything can and should be improved.

Not a single day should go by without some kind of improvement being made somewhere in the company.

Don't criticize, suggest an improvement.

Think beyond common sense. Challenge assumptions. Even if something is working, try to find the ways to make it work even better. Ask searching questions.

Customer-driven strategy for improvement any management activity should eventually lead to increased customer satisfaction.

Imagine the ideal customer experience and strive to provide it.  >>  Example




Quality first, not profit first an enterprise can prosper only if customers who purchase its products or services are satisfied.

Recognize that any corporation has problems and establish a corporate culture where everyone can freely admit these problems and suggest improvement.  >>  Example

Think of how to improve it instead of why it can't be improved.




Why? What If? questions quote Vadim Kotelnikov Dennis Kotelnikov

Mister Innovation World

Dennis, Mister Innovation World award winner, an outstanding actor and singer, is never satisfied with his performances. He doesn't seek a praise. Instead, after every performance, Dennis asks others what he could do better. Their feedback helps Dennis keep making his performances increasingly better.





See problem solving as cross-functional collaborative and systemic approach.

Emphasis on process establish a way of thinking oriented at improving processes, and a management system that supports and acknowledges people's process-oriented efforts for improvement.

Start with scarcity. It's hard to see the need for Kaizen when resources are plentiful.

When there is a worker or supplier performance problem, don't replace them. Keep them and help them improve instead.
