The Kaizen Company


Small Business


The Kaizen Company (Kaizen) is a Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) based in Washington, D.C. We are a certified small business dedicated to delivering development assistance solutions that strengthen institutions, improve organizational performance, and enable donors to reduce and eventually eliminate funding in targeted areas. Our team of development and strategic management professionals does this by transforming organizations and by creating market incentives for the locally led provision of reform support services. Local service providers respond to these incentives and continue to receive support from Kaizen even after donor funding ceases. In this way, Kaizen harnesses market forces to drive ongoing reform and to ensure sustainability. Since 2004 Kaizen has been providing institutional capacity building to public and private sector organizations in developing countries that help them make sustainable performance improvements. Our development assistance €”which has been successfully applied in a variety of technical sectors €”focuses on organizational building blocks such as strategy, human capital, and knowledge management. We create teams to promote kaizen, meaning €˜ongoing improvement at all levels at all times in the organizations we support. To this end, Kaizen 's Organizational Self-Assessment and Transformation Program (OSTP) empowers organizations to implement bottom-up, internally driven reforms, and to institutionalize reform by establishing reform team participation as a prestigious career €˜stepping stone €™ within each organization. Our Professional Communities (PCs) and Sector Support Networks (SSNs) create incentives for professional peers to support each other through the transfer of ideas, experiences, and expertise. They also strengthen the capacity of local service providers to continue support for reforms well beyond donor initiatives, in part through access tools and resources from 100+ organizations. Key Services and Expertise: Organizational Self-Assessment and Transformation, Public / Private Sector Institutional Capacity Building, Human and Institutional Capacity Development (HICD), Communities of Practice / Professional Community Development, Change Management, Strategic Management, Human Capital Management, Organizational Development, Public Sector Reform, Sustainability Solutions
