Based on the Japanese Kaizen philosophy, the Beaumont Kaizen Institute takes a hands-on approach to enhancing patient care and improving every day processes. Rather than using a classroom setting to evaluate problems, our program focuses on observation and immediate solution implementation within the clinical setting. Staff is engaged and empowered to recognize a potential problem and come up with an immediate solution in a creative, free-thinking environment. The theory behind Beaumont’s approach is that small, incremental changes made rapidly by frontline staff will have a greater impact than large, centrally driven initiatives created by senior leadership.
