Quick & Easy Kaizen is the most effective and powerful way to implement a practical and sustainable employee-led improvement system by encompassing the often-ignored, human (employee) side of Lean manufacturing. Enna’s Quick & Easy Kaizen is authored by Norman Bodek and made popular by his award winning Shingo Prize book, Quick & Easy Kaizen: The Idea Generator. This training package recognizes that the employee performing the work is the expert concerning his/her job function and should be given the power to make changes to his/her work environment. Quick & Easy Kaizen trains employees to be responsible for improvements on a daily basis.

The experience of the Godfather of Lean manufacturing, Norman Bodek, is now available in a training package.

One Program – Multiple Benefits

Are you looking for a permanent change in methods? Implementing Quick and Easy Kaizen is a proven method for receiving a continuous flow of improvement ideas from employees. These improvement ideas can improve quality, safety, throughput, and customer service. When locally implemented, these improvements can account for millions of dollars in savings to your organization.

Empower Your Employees

You are selling yourself short if you are not utilizing your own company employees to the best of their abilities. Empower your staff to create positive changes to their workplace, allowing for easier, more streamlined workflow. This opportunity to stretch their imagination and use their knowledge to make improvements will encourage them to be engaged with their work and fellow workers and increase their ownership of their workplace, resulting in higher satisfaction.

Every organization benefits from an energized and willing workforce.

Document Improvements

Do you keep track of the improvements within your organization, both big and small? Do you properly recognize those employees who actively identify areas for improvement? In order to recognize outstanding performance and reduce redundancies and duplication of efforts, proper documentation is a necessity. It is also an important tool to keep track of which employees are providing what quantities of improvement ideas, providing management with key performance indicators. The Quick and Easy Kaizen solution package outlines a simple and effective method you can use for the documentation of Kaizen improvements.

The Simplicity is in the Process

Quick and Easy Kaizen empowers employees, enriches the work experience, and brings out the best in every employee. As Norman Bodek would exclaim, Quick and Easy Kaizen releases their creative energy. This is a key training package you will need to develop a world-class improvement culture.

Quick and Easy Kaizen Structure:

  1. Employee identifies a problem and formally documents it.
  2. Employee develops improvement to correct the problem; immediately makes the appropriate change if able or, as with large ideas, goes to supervisor for approval and help.
  3. In the case of large ideas, supervisor reviews the idea. Upon approval, employee implements the idea.
  4. The initial problem, idea, and before and after photos are entered into a database. Enna’s Idea Generator Software is specially designed for use with Quick and Easy Kaizen; it is available at
  5. Supervisor posts ideas on a display board so that others in the company can learn and the employee who came up with the idea is recognized.

Participant Workbook – It is important for each participant to have their own workbook, as it provides each slide in the presentation with ample room for taking notes.

Forms – During the workshop phase of our Training Packages we provide the necessary forms to analyze and assess your operations.
