The 12th KAM KAIZEN™ Event

We are glad to share that we have concluded our 12th KAM KAIZEN™ Event with 70+ participants from across various organizations. The objective of the event was to Learn – Share – Network with like-minded people. This year there was two value adding tracks plus an inspiring opening & closing keynote address by Mr. Guy Jack (CEO, ABM Group) and Mr. Shridhar Venkat (CEO of The Akshaya Patra Foundation) respectively.

Track 1: Knowledge sessions on Kaizen for New Product Development & Better Project Management. Various sessions were run in order to provide How does one go beyond manufacturing? Can Kaizen crash Lead Time in New Product Development or in Project Management?

Kaizen, as applied to manufacturing, is understood, appreciated and sustained across quite a number of mature Kenyan manufacturers but how does it go beyond was a big question.

Track 2: National Case Study Competition

Applications were invited from Kaizen practicing organizations to Share – Learn – Challenge and win the National Kaizen Case Study Competition. 12 best case studies were selected and presented in front of the jury.
