Kaizen does not mean "continual improvement"[edit]

I am Japanese. Kaizen does not mean "continual improvement", only "improvement". It comprises of the kanji for "modify" and "good", literally translating to "make better". 240F:74:ABE:1:B0ED:A213:4150:BD61 (talk) 18:49, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Agreed however this is extrapolated in the definition of the term to include the ongoing progress of Kaizen – Craig Davison (talk) 11:24, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

how many approaches?[edit]

The last sentence of the lead paragraph of § Overview is

Two kaizen approaches have been distinguished.

Really? I count five: Point, System, Line, Plane, and Cube.

text is inconsistent[edit]

§ Point says

In some cases, it is also possible that the positive effects of point kaizen in one area can reduce or eliminate benefits of point Kaizen in some other area. An example of Point kaizen could be a shop inspection by a supervisor and he finds broken materials or other small issues, and then asks the owner of the shop to perform a quick Kaizen (5S) to rectify those issues.

I fail to see how any of this would "reduce or eliminate benefits of point Kaizen in some other area".
