How to do Kaizen when overloaded

·1 min

I responded to a tweet by Brant Roney containing a graph from a webinar held by Mark Graban and Dr. Greg Jacobson on “Making Time for Continuous Improvement”. I presented a question including a drawing on how to go about when there was no time for Kaizen, when the teams are constantly overloaded?


What about when the graph constantly look like this?

My original tweet

An interesting discussion emerged and Mark Graban put some of it into a blog post “Can You Even Consider Kaizen When the Chart Showing Time and Workload Looks Like this?” featuring my initial question and drawing.
