FOUR PRINCIPLES KAIZEN AWARDS – OUR MECHANISM FOR LEAN GROWTH IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

Complacency is the main challenge facing many organizations, especially the most successful ones. The widespread belief that if there are no problems then there is nothing to fix, is actually a huge problem, or quoting Taiichi Ohno, “the biggest problem of all”. Lean management remedies, this as the belief that everything can be improved stands in its core.

Four Principles’ aim is to spread the Lean philosophy in the region and demonstrate how it is not just a management toolkit, but a profound change of corporate culture, from the bottom of the organization to the top and vice versa.

The Four Principles Kaizen Awards are a recognition of continuous improvement seeking to drive overall awareness and implementation of Lean throughout the region.

As the leading Lean Management implementation experts in the region, we seek to recognize and reward organizations that implement Lean across their value streams. Submit your Lean success story in one of our two categories to enter and win our prestigious Lean award.

Submission deadline: September 1st, 2018
