KaizenTour 24

Program KaizenTour 24

Each program is developed in collaboration with our Japanese partner. The program varies and can be customized for specific interests. For example, we have conducted a Kaizen tour focused on construction for LeanConstruction and a program for a municipality with a focus on Lean and welfare services.


The program is generally determined based on the following template:

  • 5-8 company visits with subsequent dialogue with local management
  • Full-day Dojo - concrete Lean training with experienced Toyota consultants
  • Daily follow-up, aimed at ensuring that each participant, upon returning home, has a clear action plan for how to apply the skills gained from the tour in their own company
  • Insight into Japanese culture


The Kaizen tour lasts for 7 days. It starts on Monday morning at Narita Airport (Tokyo) - coinciding with the arrival of the direct flight from Copenhagen. It concludes the following Sunday morning, also at Narita Airport - allowing participants to be back in Denmark by late Sunday afternoon with the direct flight.
