KAIZEN derives from the two Japanese characters for “change” (改) and “better” (善) and is an all-encompassing philosophy developed from the practices introduced at Toyota in Japan in the 1960s.
Since its beginnings, which was mainly confined to the Japanese motor industry, KAIZEN has spread across the world with the expansion in the 1980s of major manufacturers like Toyota and Nissan to build production facilities Europe and the USA.
