A Very Brief History
Continual process improvement has been talked about frequently over the last two
decades. However, W. Edwards Deming taught continual process improvement to the
Japanese starting as early as 1950. We are naive to think that process
improvement began quite recently. In fact, the present-day approaches to
process improvement, such as Kaizen, are natural outgrowths of Deming's work.
When correct principles are applied along with appropriate tools, process
improvement is not only possible but well-documented in history for over 50
years. It works!
Why So Many Process Improvement Programs Fail
While there are many possible reasons why process improvement programs fail,
four of the most frequent ones are:
The improvement team is not sufficiently familiar with the process being
The process being improved is not stable.
Those attempting to improve the process lack the knowledge, skills, and tools
required to do the job.
Management pulls the team off of the improvement project before the real
benefits are obtained.
Of course, we could name others as well, but experience shows that if the above
problems are eliminated, process improvement goes forward quite smoothly.
