Lack of momentum. There is one big-bang improvement event, training course, or communication campaign, but then there is no follow-up. People are told to improve, but then there is not enough communication, no visibility, no energy, no champions, no quick wins, no internal marketing of the initiative, no metrics, no process, no training, and no support. 5. No sense of ownership/no empowerment. Not everyone is involved in the Kaizen initiative—maybe just some managers or some management-appointed Kaizen roles, who will be seen as the ‘folks responsible for Kaizen’.

Absence of a real culture. Kaizen is seen just as another process, tool, or even fad. There is no action aimed at changing people’s behaviors or value system; even worse: actions and behaviors inconsistent with the Kaizen Culture are not argued back. There is no clear desired state and there is no noble cause behind the Kaizen initiative. Existing and prevalent culture and processes will also prevent Kaizen, especially if there is a culture of ‘you cannot touch that’, ‘this is the way we’ve always done it’, or ‘this is not my/your duty’.

You will make sure that the Impediment Backlog is maintained and that it evolves over time. 8. You will help teams to see root causes by introducing techniques and tools.

You will make sure that knowledge bases are maintained so the impediments do not appear again in the future.
