Tamkeen announced the launch of the KAIZEN quality consultancy programme, which will provide businesses with a number of opportunities to adopt the Japanese KAIZEN business framework to improve labour productivity and management. This programme will be implemented in cooperation with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The first element of the project will be a KAIZEN seminar which will be held on 30 January 2016. The the partnership with JICA to bring KAIZEN to Bahrain’s private sector, stems from Tamkeen’s efforts to empower enterprises and businesses to become better diversified and more productive.
KAIZEN, a Japanese word meaning “improvement”, is a project feature which streamlines organisational processes by eliminating procedures which add no additional value to an organisation. The project also creates a sustainable mechanism to promote the most efficient allocation of organisational resources. Implementation of KAIZEN allows businesses to deliver incremental quality and productivity output throughout entire organisational structure.
Mrs. Amal Al Kooheji, Tamkeen’s Chief Operating Officer, commented on the announcement saying: “Through our diverse and core programmes, Tamkeen has always strived to support Bahrainis through their development by providing them with the necessary tools to succeed. By partnering with the Japan International Cooperation Agency, we aim to bring the KAIZEN consultancy programme to contribute in growing Bahraini SMEs as well as Bahrain’s workforce and increase quality overall.”
