Kaizen, kaikaku, kabuki

All innovation and improvement efforts can fit into one of the following three categories:

  • Kaizen, continuous or incremental improvement and innovation.
  • Kaikaku, breakthrough or radical improvement and innovation.
  • Kabuki, theatrical or fictitious improvement and innovation.

Two of these produce positive and enduring results.
