Kaizen is a term used especially in companies that means to continuously improve the quality of work. This word was derived from Japanese, with ‘kai’ meaning change and ‘zen’ meaning good. This means that when you are called for a kaizen meeting, you are being reminded of how to work continuously and with improvements.

In a Kaizen meeting, employees are being reminded of the statistical process that gives you the chance to improve continuously in your workplace and have the best results. This meeting is conducted so that employees can voice out their opinions on how one can improve their work. They can also voice out problems they have encountered or any concerns they want to be addressed.
