Guys, I need to come up with a format for a Kaizen board that will work!! We have a company of 20 individuals who may wish to submit improvement suggestions. Previously, we have used a board with Kanban to pull improvements through according to importance but it has slowly died. Anyone use a good Kaizen Improvement system that is simple and effective? Any help greatfully received. Thanks, Steve.

Please e-mail me directly and I can send you a paper on our Quick & Easy Kaizen program. Please only contact me if your willing to deprogram your brain of the word SUGGESTION program because a suggestion program is as old as the hills and gets in the way of the Quick & Easy Kaizen IDEA program. Our company employs 108 employees and our IDEA program achieves close to 1 IDEA per employee per month (1,000 to 1,200 IDEAs\year). Sound to good to be true??? Well then, you haven't been deprogrammed yet. If you are attending the upcoming AME conference in Kitchener Ontario, look me up as I will be co-facilitating a work shop on June 12th titled "All you gotta do is ask"

It is good to have as many as suggestions per employees one can has. But sometime ago one of my friend said that MORE suggestions means initially a very raw and crude System / Equipment / Low Safety etc. Does not it?
