Right now, every business leader in America is doing something they’ve never done before—managing employees through a pandemic. COVID-19 has changed so much about how we live and work that you should not be hard on yourself if you are struggling to support your organization’s culture and to keep your employees engaged.

Employee engagement is essential for success, especially in this disrupted environment. Organizations with high employee engagement are 21% more profitable. They experience less turnover and absenteeism, and each worker is more productive. But how can you support engagement when remote work and physical distancing are required whenever possible?

What is Kaizen? The Short and Long Answers

When asked to describe his threshold test for obscenity in 1964, United States Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart famously said, "… perhaps I could never succeed in intelligibly doing so. But I know it when I see it."

I feel a bit that way about defining the improvement concept known as kaizen. There are many ways to describe it, and I will share some of them in this post, but because kaizen is a way of thinking, of being, really, it is easier to recognize than to delineate. I do not doubt that there are countless organizations and people that practice the principles of kaizen without having ever heard the word.

Hopefully, once you've read this post, you'll know more about what kaizen looks like and how you can apply the philosophy to your daily approach to work.

We are often asked, “What kind of businesses need a continuous process improvement platform?” Our standard answer is that organizations in every sector, including healthcare, construction, high tech, engineering, and higher education, benefit from improvement technology. And that’s true, but the industry is only part of the story. Improvement is essential for every type of organization, but there are certain conditions under which software support can have an enormous impact.

Organizations with Multiple Locations or Remote Workers

These days people frequently work remotely, and many organizations have multiple locations or job sites. One of the most significant benefits of improvement software is that it makes it possible for people to contribute to improvement and collaboration from wherever they are. Tools like physical huddle boards don’t work well for distributed workforces, but with process improvement software, they can be effectively used without the need to get everyone in the same place.
