In my last post about KaiNexus in February, I gave an update about our funding, new CEO, and other changes.

We now have a newly re-designed website. We hope you'll check it out and give us feedback, by posting a comment here or by emailing Mark @ We hope it succinctly and effectively communicates the problem we solve and how we do it through our innovation and improvement platform.

We have new KaiNexus customers in industries outside of healthcare – a large global manufacturer, an architecture firm, and a fresh produce distributor. They are using our platform to “make improvement happen,” providing visibility, collaboration, and metrics across multiples sites and/or a distributed workforce.

If you'd like to learn more about proven continuous improvement practices and see a quick demo of how the KaiNexus platform supports those efforts, you can view a recording of our most recent webinar.

Dr. Greg Jacobson and I are also doing a brand new webinar for our friends and KaiNexus partners at Gemba Academy.

It's titled:

Congratulations, You Have Lots of Employee Ideas! Now What?

Register Today!

About the webinar:

Many Lean or Kaizen initiatives are focused on getting front-line employees to identify problems or opportunities for improvement, along with a potential idea or countermeasure. Some managers, unfortunately, think their employees won't have many good ideas. This is hardly ever the case! Your employees have a lot of great ideas.

So let's say you've started to solicit ideas and you're now overwhelmed. In this webinar, Mark Graban and Dr. Greg Jacobson will share stories and tips on how to cope with this situation and to thrive, based on their own experiences.

They will cover topics such as:

  • how to discuss ideas constructively with employees
  • how to prioritize ideas (and if that's even necessary)
  • how to assign responsibility for improvement work
  • how to create time for improvement
  • how to track improvements

Mark and Greg also want to answer your specific questions on this topic. Please submit your question(s) via this Google Form.

May 15 – the ROI of KaiNexus and WorkOuts

We are also doing a brand new webinar on May 15: The ROI of KaiNexus and the WorkOut Methodology.
