About KAIZEN™ Congress

KAIZEN™ Congress is an Annual Event, hosted for the past 11 years in India and 15 years in Africa.

Keeping with the times, KAIZEN™ Congress goes Virtual in 2021 and will be a combined India-Africa mega-event. The 3 days from 8th – 10th June 2021 will showcase Practical applications of Authentic KAIZEN™ methodologies by Worldwide Industry Stalwarts & Pioneers. The Objective is for participants to Learn and Be Inspired by the possibility of Holistic organisational transformation in the Business Excellence realm.

The Event will host 500+ Attendees, 100+ Companies, 20+ Renowned Speakers and 30+ Case Stud paired along with a power-packed agenda for the 3 days.

The Theme for this year’s virtual congress is Strategy to Action – in Covid Times. Most organisations thrive when the business environment is favourable and struggle to survive when conditions deteriorate. This is the case for 99% of organisations – when revenues drop, business results are adversely impacted due to resource inefficiencies. The inefficiencies in turn are primarily due to an organisational “blind-spot” – a systemic failure to “see” Waste (Muda). The agenda of Pure Improvement is cast in sessions that will enable companies visualize their journey to world-class The KAIZEN™ Way - a structured methodology, employing tools & techniques, along with total people-engagement across levels; a KAIZEN™ Change Model that helps build a Culture of Continuous Improvement - so that organisations not only survive but thrive!
