Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning daily improvement. The term was adapted to United States' culture in the 1980s to eventually be associated with rapid improvement. The business sector has implemented Rapid Improvement Events (RIEs), which are a workshop focused on identifying and problem solving issues within the organization. These workshops task team members with improving the organization in some capacity through means of collaboration, engagement, and impact using the tools at their disposal. For Rapid Improvements month, see what a kaizen RIE can do for you and your workplace! The new 2022 Learning Framework was developed by State team members, for State team members. Each month, we will highlight a new topic, one directly related to The Missouri Way Training Series. These trainings, along with ENGAGE conversation topics, live educational opportunities, and additional learning resources, are combined into one comprehensive package. While participation is optional, our goal is to provide just the right amount of education so supervisors can meet their LDR goals, and all team members can meet their individual educational goals.
