We have been cooperating with ICG for more than two years. The primary aim of our cooperation was and still is to spread Kaizen culture in a non-violent way through education and workshops. To do this, we have mapped the value flow and defined Kaizen Events, which have always been targeted to a particular obstacle to the main goal of building the OPF line. Kaizen Events have been very carefully implemented, from planning, staffing, goal specification, use of techniques, consultants’ choice to final presentation of proposals, and feedback from participants and sponsors. Thanks to careful organization and implementation, we are able to spread Kaizen’s nonviolent culture in the company, with parallel benefits in the form of significant improvements in individual workplaces. I see cooperation with ICG as very successful one. We managed to transfer a large amount of know-how to internal staff, and ICG (after a year and a half) already works only in the form of an external consultancy and audit company now. The basis for successful cooperation with ICG is shared philosophy and approach to Kaizen.
