What is a Kaizen Charter?

The kaizen event is the most popular Lean process improvement tool. It is a high-energy, high-impact event centered on optimizing processes with a team of 3-8 employees who are involved with that process.

A kaizen event achieves much in a short time, so it needs a clear plan. A kaizen charter is that plan. It is a one-page document that lists the problem statement, the objectives, and the expected results from a kaizen event. The charter always follows team selection and is developed jointly with the team and leadership.

Six Benefits of a Kaizen Charter

  1. Clarity and Alignment
  2. Opportunity Mindset
  3. Empowerment
  4. Scoping
  5. Creativity
  6. Trust and Teamwork
