  8. 9. <ul><li>3 Principles of Kaizen Implementation: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Attack by changing a part, not the whole. – Divide a problem into smaller parts. Attack little by little. Change little by little. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Attack by changing the angle. – Don’t stick to only one way of doing things. Change the factors involved. Change the conditions. View the problem from a variety of perspectives. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Attack by changing the level. – It is not necessary to be perfect in Kaizen. Start at the level at which something can be done immediately and easily to improve the situation. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>Principles of Kaizen Implementation
