Reading again and again this book, some phrases are priceless as diamonds and they are worth being shared them :
''Kaizen means ongoing improvement involving everyone''
''......important aspect of kaizen has been its emphasis on process. It has generated a process-oriented way of thinking''
''The kaizen concept stresses management's supportive and stimulative role for people's effort to improve processes''
''Kaizen is an umbrella covering most of those ''uniquely Japanese'' practices that have recently achieved such worldwide fame (Kanban, Just in time, TQC, TPM, Zero defects, Small group activities)''
Addressing the top management:
''Be determined to introduce KAIZEN as a corporate strategy''
    '' Build systems, procedures, and structures conducive to KAIZEN''
''In the kaizen strategy, management must review the current standard and try to improve it.''
