thanks for the explanation, I have learned something.
Tank you for participating in the discussion,. I'm pleased that you have some knowledge about the methodology, with the links i putted in the forum and your explanation i think the information should be enough for the community starting making their opinions.
PS: Has i work in a Portuguese branch of a Japanese company, I have to be prepared to this cultural differences and different frameworks.I thought that was interesting to the community know more about this specific different approaches and find someone that possesses the knowledge to help us be aware of the different cultural approaches.
Yes me too. I haven't heard of it before.
I am going to talk about Japanese culture.
There is a word "zentai-sekinin" in Japanese. This means that an issue is a team-wide issue and that the issue is responsible for all team members.
During the Middle Ages, Japanese introduced a system in which multiple households jointly managed one field during farming.
This is a system established to cover work when one household is ill or injured and cannot work on farming.
These households were jointly responsible for tax payments to the government.
In other words, this is also a system for stabilizing tax revenues, and I think that it is the basis for a culture in which multiple members take responsibility, such as paying taxes together.
Japan once experienced a revolution.
It means the end of the Tokugawa shogunate in the Edo era and the beginning of the Meiji era.
At that time, Japan's political system changed significantly from the rule of "samurai" to the rule of politicians brought by Western Europe.
However, the foundation of Japanese culture has not changed at all.
In other words, "kaikaku" has the meaning of transforming everything from the ground up without losing important identities.
On the other hand, "kaizen" is close to the idea behind Toyota's "kanban".
The project management framework teaches us how to achieve better success.But that doesn't mean we can use these frameworks straightforwardly.
I think that the same framework can be used in various ways depending on who uses it.
Because I and you both have personality, I think it is good that there is a way to use the framework according to personality.
Identity lies in personality. Respect for individuality will protect our identity.
I am a big adept of kaizan, I think in the end we all are , we should always continuos improving. Did you know that there is a learning institute of kaizan, I am meditating if getting a certification in kaizan will be of great value or not for me.
