Kaizen is a business philosophy developed and applied by Japanese businesses sometime in the eighties. Literally translated it means ‘change for the better’ or improvement. It has become synonymous with companies who have been market leaders in developing the most innovative and exciting products in their markets, those not afraid to embrace change and continually look to the future. It is no wonder then that the Japanese are so famed for having led the technological industries for the past three decades, where few countries have come close to reaching the technological heights they have. Luckily, many Western global leaders have also adopted this approach to business, in an attempt to steer their companies into the future.
