What is and what isn't kaizen?

Its goal is cost reduction, and the sub-goals are quantity control, quality assurance, and respect for humanity. These goals are dependent on one another, not independent. That means that productivity improvement must not come at the expense of the goals or vice versa.

For example, Professor Monden says in Toyota Production System (first edition, 1983, page 2):

“…although cost-reduction is the system’s most important goal, it must achieve three other sub-goals in order to achieve its primary objective. They include:

1. Quantity control, which enables the system to adapt to daily and monthly fluctuations in demand in terms of quantities and variety;
2. Quality assurance, which assures that each process will supply only good units to subsequent processes;
3. Respect-for-humanity, which must be cultivated while the system utilizes the human resources to obtain its cost objectives.

Flow is the foundation of Lean. The departure from flow as the objective to some other thing (such as randomly applying Lean tools, learning, problem-solving, productivity improvement, growth, maximize shareholder value, or other) has had the unintended effect of generating widespread Fake Lean and perpetuating batch-and-queue processing, which, in turn has harmed people (especially employees) and tarnished the Lean movement.

“What is the problem or the opportunity you have identified?” (Thanks for pointing out this problem or opportunity, by the way).

“What other potential solutions or countermeasures did you consider?”

“Why do you think that is the best idea to try?”

“Is there a way we could do a small, risk-free test to see if the idea would work?”
