Today’s topic is End.
What is an ending? Is the work ever finished? At the start of #ExploreElul we talked about the Design Thinking Process and how you can keep iterating on your designs to continue to improve them. This process of continuous improvement, or Kaizen in Japanese, is common within the manufacturing industry (and is also one of Trader Joe’s 7 Core Values).
The Kaizen philosophy is one of improvement to every aspect of an organization from the newest employee to the longest tenured through improved efficiency and teamwork. The goal is Kaizens is to make everyone’s life easier, safer and more fulfilling.
Businesses aren’t the only ones who can use Kaizens. If we keep an open mind we can find ways to improve not only our lives but those around us.
JEdSTEM aims to develop engaged, curious, and innovative Jewish minds for the modern world.
