At Fidelity Investments Kaizen involves recognizing problems and needs, rather than denying them, so they can be addressed.




STRIDES is the approach to use "where the problem is more complex.

T Target:: "Where do we want to be?"

R Research: "What research do we need?"

I Implementation Plan: "What is our plan?"

D Do it!: "Let's do it!"

E Evaluate: "What's working? What's not?"

S Standardize: "How will we standardize?"
