A Rapid Improvement Event is also known as a Kaizen Event. In practice a Rapid Improvement Event generally spans from 1 to 5 days and involves key process participants focusing on solving a narrowly scoped process improvement opportunity. The difference between Rapid Improvement Events and typical workshops is threefold:

  1. The planning for the event is extensive
  2. Leadership has given explicit approval for change
  3. The agreed upon improvement takes place before the Rapid Improvement Event is completed
