The activity of a Kaizen Event is outlined in a project charter, a contract to direct activities of the team and the approach to change.

Good value for six hours - not a typical healthcare course, but useful

I appreciated the methods and tools to help improve processes or tasks in my organization. I would have liked more hands on experience in using the various tools identified in the course, but this is a good start for me to experiment on my coworkers!
