It is called kaizen, which is the process of making gradual changes and improvements. It is a pleasant path that requires you to place one foot in front of the other. #3 The American manufacturing industry was one of the biggest factors in the Allied victory during World War II. The quality of American equipment and the speed of its production were two of the major factors. #4 Kaizen is the practice of taking small, comfortable steps toward improvement. It is a different approach to innovation, which demands shocking and radical reform. Kaizen is commonly used to improve business processes, but it can also be used to improve personal processes.
