The word Kaizen translates roughly to 'Good Change.' Kaizen is a philosophy that calls for people and their teams to experience ongoing improvement at every level. By focusing on small, incremental change rather than dramatic innovation, Kaizen seeks to build effective and efficient processes and quality outputs. The team at Singlethread has adopted this philosophy through constant attention to even the smallest of details; from personal goals to daily routines, everything is looked upon as something that can be improved. Every month, the staff elects someone who has shown the true characteristics of Kaizen.
“Kaizen is the daily practice of intentional self improvement and creating positive change in one’s environment. It is the continual refinement of one’s craft, skills and work habits. This practice not only allows and supports one’s own success but supports the success of everyone. My Kaizen for the beginning of 2019 inside and outside the kitchen is to actively practice patience, effective communication, and continued work/life balance. I intend to lead by example and help those around me accomplish their own goals as well as push myself into new growth. Kaizen!”
