ZAMBIA’s adoption of Kaizen has the potential to contribute to the country’s attainment of  Vision 2030 through the promotion of quality and productivity improvement among private and public sectors, a Kaizen official has said.
Kaizen is a Japanese saying which means change for better.
Kaizen Institute of Zambia (KIZ) chief executive officer Chola Mwitwa said the system can help both private and public organiation members change their mind to make Zambia as an economic player that can compete at a global level.
Mr Mwitwa said in response to a press query last week that Kaizen is being actively deployed as a strategy by a number of countries in their quest to grow and remain high-income economies.
“It is a tool that has been adopted by many countries seeking to be competitive in world economy. As an entity, the KIZ will contribute to attainment of Zambia’s aspirations of 2030 vision through the promotion of quality and productivity improvement among private and public sector organisations,” he said.
The institute’s mission is to make Zambian organisations adopt excellence in practice to create world-class goods and services through Kaizen. Since 2009-2013, a total of 37 organisations have embraced Kaizen and they have show-cased the improvements made to their originations at Kaizen conferences.
On challenges, Mr Mwitwa said the introduction of Kaizen has come with problems to those that have not come across it, they have initially thought that is a one-off event while others have seen it as additional responsibility and, therefore, burdensome.
Government, through Cabinet office, Ministry of Commerce ,Trade and Industry , Private Sector Development Reform Programme and Japan International Co-operation Agency, has given an unequalled support to the KIZ in its establishment stage and this mitigated potential challenges related to resources.
KIZ is a non-profit making organisation established to fast-track the promotion of quality and productivity improvement in Zambian organisations to produce goods and services that are internationally competitive.
