Rapid Improvement Events—also referred to as Kaizen Events or Blitzes, Rapid Process Improvement Workshops (RPIWs), and Workouts—are highly structured and narrowly focused improvement activities that generate rapid results.
When used in moderation, Rapid Improvement Events (RIEs) are also an effective way to develop organizational agility, build strong cross-functional problem-solving capabilities, demonstrate the power of intense focus, and develop a commitment to process excellence.
This course contains the step-by-step method for planning and holding successful RIEs—and how to document results and spread the learning. What you’ll learn:
1. The steps for planning an RIE, which center on developing a detailed Charter
2. Roles and responsibilities of all parties involved
3. How RIEs are typically structured
4. What to do in each stage of an RIE
5. How to conclude an RIE
