KAIZEN™ Congress India 2020
KAIZEN™ Congress India has always been a highly sought-after knowledge sharing gathering in India for over a decade. From 19. - 21. February, 2020 Kaizen Institute India concluded its 11th KAIZEN™ Congress in India.
The congress witnessed the Operational and Business Excellence community come together to Learn, See, Share and Get Inspired in the world class method of KAIZEN™ and Lean methodologies. The congress was driven on the theme of "Thriving in Adversity Through Business Excellence". Even though multiple industries are flourishing in India some of the biggest hurdles like inadequate utilization of resources and wasteful activities have not been resolved yet.
KAIZEN™ is the heart of Operational and Business Excellence. KAIZEN™ thinking is all about sustenance in all scenarios and market conditions and Kaizen Institute India is on a mission to educate the importance of KAIZEN™, the ideology that made the Japanese one of the most successful economies.
