A greatMore(From the Publishers Message)The term “wiki” comes from the Hawaiian phrase, “wiki wiki,” which means“super fast” or “quick.” A wiki is also a Web site that allows users to add andupdate content on the site using their own Web browser. A great example of alarge wiki is the Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia that anyone can edit.If you have thousands of users adding content to a Web site on a regular basis,the site could grow “super fast” in a very short time period.

We have taken that Wiki meaning of “quick” and “super fast” and applying it to the Kaizen concept of “continuous improvement.” Businesses today must continually change, update their processes and systems faster than ever. Therefore, Wiki Kaizen is defined as a quick, easy-to-implement improvement b that does not typically require any type of collaboration.

The subsequentdocumentation and sharing of this improvement knowledge would be availablethroughout the organization. This self-perpetuating business improvementmodel would allow improvements to expand at a faster rate than before. WikiKaizen is meant to assist the front-line worker to not only gain a basic understanding of Lean but also use this information to “quickly” improve their daily work processes by eliminating wasteful activities that add no value.Today’s Lean! – The Wiki Kaizen Approach to Continuous Improvement is another book from the Today’s Lean!

series of books published by MCS Media,Inc. It has been suggested by you, our readers, that you would like Lean andSix Sigma information to be more succinct and at your fingertips, thus allowing for a single tool or concept to be easily accessible (i.e., as a pocket guide and not a manual). Therefore, the Today’s Lean!

series of books provide:1. Concise content on one main Lean or Six Sigma tool or concept2. Numerous case studies, worksheets, and examples from all types of industries3. Availability as a pocket guide or ebook4. A standard format5. An avenue to update content immediately via your feedback and input (viaebook updates)6. An inspiration for you to implement something similarMany Lean and Six Sigma tools inter-relate and rarely will only one Leantool be used.

So, why you might ask are these tools being “separated” into separate topics? It is because we have realized that many Lean and SixSigma tools also are fairly simple to understand and “most” people are smartenough to provide the “common-sense” connection to a specific improvementactivity once the basics of a tool is explained.Today’s Lean!

– The Wiki Kaizen Approach to Continuous Improvement provides the following:1. Numerous real-world practical detailed case studies on how Lean wasused to solve various business challenges in a quick manner2. Insights on how Lean and Six Sigma can be used by an individual3.

A Wiki Kaizen Determination Worksheet allowing for determination if WikiKaizens are the right approach4. A Wiki Kaizen Proposal form to ensure proper communication occursbetween the employee and the supervisor or manager5. A Waste Audit Worksheet to help define areas for applying the Wiki Kaizenapproach or to work on larger-type improvement projects6. A breadth of understanding on how incremental and seemingly smallimprovements can impact an organization or work groupIt is with great pleasure to present the Today’s Lean!

series and this particularbook on Wiki Kaizens.
