Kaizen is the Operations and Strategy Club of Indian Institute of Management, Indore. In the spirit of its name, the focus of the club is on continuous improvement of the participants with regards to their operations and strategy competence.
At one time, operations management was considered the backwater of management activities – a dirty, drab necessity. This view has changed in recent years, as more and more managers realize how operations can be a “beehive” of activity with major financial consequences for any organization. Club Kaizen aims to equip participants with a keen understanding of the nuances involved in these matters through its activities round the academic year.
The club’s forte is to regularly come up with innovative and enriching learning experiences like industrial visits, quizzes, computer based events, simulation games, guest lectures by experienced industry personnel. IIM Indore is strategically located right next to Pithampur Industrial Estate (Special Economic Zone), which is Asia’s second largest industrial hub with the likes of Mahindra, Larson & Tubro, Eicher Motors, Cummins, Force Motors .etc. having their manufacturing plants here. The club leverages this proximity to the â€˜Detroit of India’ by conducting industrial visits for Hands-On learning of the concepts like Toyota production system, Supply Change Management, Operations Management .etc. To further strengthen the understanding and simultaneously build relationship with the industrial community, the club brings in live projects, wherein participants get their hands dirty whilst tackling the unique and interesting challenges faced by the industry houses.
Furthermore, Certifications like FAQ green belt certification courses help participants to build competency and a strong foundation in their area of choice.
