Learning Activity 1 No more than 2 paragraph. Use APA Format, in text citation and refernce page. 

You have been recently promoted to the position of plant manager in a large Mexican operation owned by your employer, a Fortune 500 company. After taking some time to assess the situation, you have determined that the implementation of Kaizen continuous improvement activities would substantially improve the quality and efficiency of the operation. Pioneered by Toyota and widely adopted around the world by numerous companies, this technique is based on having employees analyze their own working situation and area, identify problems, and suggest changes. It has been shown to be particularly effective and also results in increased employee satisfaction. 

After several attempt to implement the techniques, you are becoming concerned that it is not being adopted as readily and enthusiastically as you have seen elsewhere. You begin to suspect some cultural issues and refer to Geert Hofstede’s web site for guidance:

Using this resource and the material attached, respond to the following questions:

1   What cultural issues do you think exist that might impede the implementation in this plant?

2   How would you address them in order to take advantage of the benefits of Kaizen?
