The path to KAIZEN Manager

In recent years there has been a definitive shift from sporadic KAIZEN improvements towards a more systematic improvement of corporate structures.
To this end the demands on a Continuous Improvement Manager are also changing.

In order to fulfill these requirements we offer a qualification programme tiered into 3 competence levels.
Participants progress
from KAIZEN Practitioner via the KAIZEN Coach to the KAIZEN Manager, the training successfully combining the best current theoretical and practical methods.
Prior to sitting the KAIZEN Manager exam the candidate must demonstrate that he/she has participated in all the necessary seminars throughout his/her training and has applied the skills learnt in his/her own area.
Another prerequisite to becoming a KAIZEN Manager is that the measures implemented by the individual must provide savings to the company equal to the cost of training. Frequently in practice the savings are far greater.
For the company this means that the costs of the qualification program are covered, and may even be profitable!
