Kaizen

Kaizen

  • Comments 6

Kaizen is a Japanese term for continuous improvement.  A little Kaizen goes a long way over time.  From a personal development standoint, it's key for overcoming resistance.

  • The Japanese word kaizen (改善) means "improvement". There is no "continuous" sense to the word.

    Just for reference, here are two definitions from Japanese dictionaries.

    Daijirin: 「物事をよい方に改めること。」

    Nihon Kokugo Daijiten: 「物事の悪い面を改めてよくすること。よい方向へ改めること。改良。⇔改悪。」

  • Thanks for the clarification Nihon.  

    Is there a Japanese equivalent for the English concept of "continuous improvement"? (i.e. how to say *continuous* Kaizen?)
