Road Map of Kaizen

How Kaizen philosophy has spread throughout the world and has been applied to environments inside and outside the business as well as productivity? How to solve one ‘’basic issue’’ in your company?

Kaizen, first practiced in Japanese businesses, is a concept referring to business activities that continuously improve all functions and involve all employees from the CEO to the assembly line workers. Currently, aiming to eliminate waste (lean manufacturing), we can see Kaizen has been put into use mainly in the supply chain, such as purchasing and logistics. Besides, it also applies to healthcare, psychotherapy, life coaching, government, and banking.

IPR Working Group Meeting: Brand Protection Strategies in China

A strong brand is instrumental in winning new customers when entering China’s market. As lot of time and money is spent on building brand reputation, it can be damaging to SMEs if someone else started to sell their products under the same brand name. Thus, brand protection is the key to success on China’s market. Successful protection, however, requires a comprehensive strategy, including registering IP such as trademarks, monitoring the market and taking action when spotting infringements.
