A term made much use of in Joel Barker's Paradigms videotapes. It is a mental structure or framework for making sense out of, and solving problems, using data relevant to that structure. Major paradigm shifts occur about twice a century.

Pareto Chart

A graphic tool for ranking causes of problems from the most significant to the least. It is based on the Pareto Principle that most effects come from twenty percent of the possible causes. The Pareto Chart is one of the seven basic tools of quality.


Credited by Edward Deming to Walter Steward of Western Electric (who may have gotten it from John Dewey), the cycle is a concept of how thinking must proceed to create continuous improvement. The most common form of the cycle consists of four elements ? Plan, Do, Check, and Act. Dr. Deming has recently re-termed them ? Plan, Do, Investigate, and Adjust.


In Japan, this term is used to describe long - and medium-range - management priorities, as well as annual goals or targets. Policy is composed of both goals and measures (ends and means). Goals (Control Points) are usually quantitative figures established by top management, such as sales, profit, and market share. Measures (Check Points) are the specific action programs designed to achieve these goals.

Policy Deployment

The process of implementing the policies of an organization's leadership directly through line managers and indirectly through cross-functional integration and cooperation. Along with Cross-Functional Management, one of the Seven KAIZEN Systems.

Principles of KAIZEN

The three bedrock principles upon which KAIZEN thinking and organizational culture are based. Process and Results, Systemic Thinking, and Non- Judgmental, Non-Blaming.

Process and Results

One of the three foundation principles of KAIZEN thinking. It is contrasted with Results Only, the common old paradigm approach which ignores the way in which things are done, and so misses any opportunity for systematic improvement. Process and Results can also be stated as Process Creates Results.
