Kaizen procedures evolved in the automobile industry. Therefore, most of Kaizen literature, publications, books, cite Kaizen implementation in factories such as Toyota, Ford, Mazda and the like. But work practices within pharmaceutical, medical device and biotech industry are different from the auto sector.
Regulations, customer demands, competitor landscape, product criteria, facility and environmental needs as well as employee skills within pharmaceutical (medical devices and biotech) companies are extremely stringent and totally different from the automobile industry. Therefore, ‘as is’ Kaizen practices from auto sector won’t work for pharmaceutical, medical device, and biotech organizations. Kaizen needs to be customized for these life science industries, to achieve its full benefits. So far, there has been no book on Kaizen that is customized for such industries.
For over a decade, the author, Dr. Shruti Bhat has successfully completed more than 250 Kaizen, Lean Six Sigma and other continuous improvement projects worldwide within pharmaceuticals NHP, medical devices, biotech and healthcare sectors, and felt it will be beneficial to share those techniques and experiences.
Some salient features of this book:
•This book presents useful ideas that one can implement immediately, often at no additional cost.
•It shows how to transform a business from ‘good- to- great’. True benefits of Kaizen implementation are realized because it adds value to your products, increases market share, and drives both top and bottom lines of your business.
•It shows pharmaceutical & biotech scientists, design engineers, operators and everyone involved in product development, how to utilize Kaizen- to create innovations, conduct successful scale-up and technology transfer to manufacturing sites.
•It shows the company’s senior management, how to use Kaizen to increase ROI (return on investment) while complying with cGMP (current Good Manufacturing Practices) and other regulations, address any rising competition and counteract fluctuating market economy.
•Kaizen has mainly been used in Japan and many other SE Asian companies and in Europe. Up until now, it has not gained enough significance in North America, because of which it has not been utilized to its full potential. The root cause is the difference in work culture and corporate governance styles of companies in eastern and western countries; this book totally eliminates this gap and presents Kaizen methodology for direct implementation within any pharmaceutical, medical device or biotech company; in east or west.
•This book can also be an excellent resource for Kaizen beginners with a lot of real life industry examples, case studies and several ‘do-it-yourself’ exercises, which is of tremendous value, in absence of a Kaizen coach.
In addition to explaining all the general Kaizen process features, implementation, and application, this book also provides a structured approach to designing Kaizen strategies, practices and implementation for pharmaceutical, medical device and biotech companies.
This book will be most applicable to small to medium-size companies. It will demystify Kaizen and help business leaders in pharmaceutical, medical device, biotech and all life sciences organizations, irrespective of their size or workplace culture. It will also provide practical and useful examples and case studies of Kaizen principles that can be executed at various levels across the organization as well as for yourself as an individual to further your personal career. And last but not the least, it will help to improve revenues and create a lasting profitable change by using Kaizen principles and techniques.
