Carlo Ratto and Bruno Fabiano also launched the new format of training KAIZEN™ Live Experience. A model where training is not done in a classroom or in front of a screen, but directly inside the company, at gemba, analysing concrete problems, real situations and drawing real solutions to be presented to the company management and therefore creating the conditions to start a path of continuous improvement.
