Lean Manufacturing consists of numerous tools and concepts. Many organizations spend much of their resources (people, time, investments…etc) acquiring understanding and knowledge on these Lean Tools. Nevertheless, the acquired knowledge is frequently not translated into actual ‘real life’ practices. One of the important practices of Lean is the Kaizen Event. Kaizen Event is a short burst of intense activity and effort, which gives more emphasis on action over analysis to achieve actual shopfloor results over a set timeframe.
Kaizen Events will address many of the day-to-day problems with permanent solutions instead of quick-fix band-aids. A properly planned and executed Kaizen Event will yield high impact tangible results, moving a "firefighting" organization towards stability and  ‘continuous improvement’.
