Kaizen ("Kai:Change Zen:Good")

Continuous improvement is not a good enough translation [of Kaizen], because it does not carry forward the tremendous self-discipline and commitment that everybody has when doing Kaizen.

Masaaki Imai in “Definition of Kaizen” on Youtube

A better definition of Kaizen would be “Continuous improvement by everybody, everyday, every where”.
