Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to support the ongoing kaizen work at a medical centre. Two main topics have been addressed in this study:

• Find a solution to ensure that the kaizen decisions are followed and will get a strong grip in the organisation.

• Support the kaizen process by giving advice on how to structure the meetingsand how the kaizen work could be done more effectively.

The study started with a visit to the medical centre to observe the kaizen process and the attitudes among the employees. The employees were asked to fill in a survey about the kaizen work at the centre. The final recommendations given have been based on this and also information gathered from other medical centres which work after the same kaizen principles. The recommendations for the two topics mentioned above mainly suggested a better documentation standard and 5S on the kaizenprocess at the medical centre.
