Japan World 5s & Lean Transformation Summit

How to involve employees in the process of constant improvement that made Japan one of the top world economies, basing on the example of Japanese production and service companies, as well as those operating in the public space?

Japan, Fukuoka/Hiroshima/Kioto/Ashigaka/Tokyo


Dear Sirs,

Japanese philosophy of thinking and acting KAIZEN meaning "continuous improvement" is a part of the Japanese mentality and thus is obvious to them. Proper application of kaizen will translate into improved quality, significant drop in costs and satisfying customer expectations, without a need for significant investments. To achieve these goals it is necessary to apply process standardization tools and eliminate inefficiency.
The answer is the 5S strategy, that is based on the kaizen approach. 5S are the first letters of five Japanese words: series, seiton, seiso, seiketsu, shitsuk (selection, systematics, cleaning, standardization, and self-improvement). Implementation of the 5S System in companies improves organization of workplaces and increases companies’ profitability. The most important benefits of implementing 5S for employees are, above all, greater job satisfaction, elimination of obstacles and frustration at work, and more effective communication with colleagues.

5S and visual management are considered to be the most important lean management tools, implementation of which constitutes basis of all other improvement activities.

During the 7th edition of our trip to Japan, which will take place November 3-11.2018, we will visit not only the largest Japanese factories (Toto, Toyota), but also take part in the 5S Transformation Summit in Ashikaga City. During this event, we will visit the largest Japanese companies producing parts for Shinkansen – super-fast Japanese trains, cars and the aviation industry. These companies build their innovative empires in a balanced manner based on relations with employees, which are considered the essence of the success of Japanese enterprises and society. In addition, we will visit companies operating in the field of environmental protection and recycling, as well as the City Hall and School.


Ashigaka called "5S City" is a city in which the first school in Japan was established. It's a great place to get to know the Japanese management system. The whole society, the city and most of the companies operating here, both in the private and public sector, have implemented 5S. The city authorities, in cooperation with companies and schools, work together to spread this philosophy throughout the country and the world. We will start our tour from the southern part of the country, where we will visit global companies. The tour will end in the north, where we will take part in the 5S Transformation Summit. I invite you to familiarize yourself with our programme and book places today.

Book your place now!
