    Fred is comical – :^)Difference …
    Lean – removing waste from processes
    Six Sigma – reducing VariationKaizen – (kai – meeting of the, zen – minds) – basically a limited
    set of Lean tools and commonly a “rapid” change event – i.e a week
    long event where 90 % of the solution is implemented.
    Before getting to Kaizen – you need to consider “kaikaku” which is
    “initial radical change: which focusses on the same change as
    Kaizen but focusses on a significant level of pre-planning, event
    and post event communication on cultural shift. It is this cultural
    shift that makes continuous improvement successful long term.Adam
