About this episode

The famous American management guru Dr. W. Edwards Deming said: "Improve constantly and forever... the system of production and service, to improve quality and productivity, and thus constantly decrease costs."

There is a very popular term for continuous improvement in use today, "kaizen."  It's from the Japanese "ki" meaning "change" and "zen" for "good."  Thus, leading to continuous improvement.
