Kaizen means all personnel are expected to stop their work when they encounter any abnormality and, along with their supervisor, suggest an improvement to resolve the abnormality.
Here is a video explanation about this translation
When the improvement requires personnel outside of the immediate work area, a kaizen burst (or radical process improvement) event may be useful.
A Kaizen burst event should be part of an overall program of continuous improvement if they are to be successful and for gains to be sustained.
