Pareto and Kaizen (改善)

Formal methodologies can be process heavy and limiting. While Kaizen (改善) methods aim to implementing continuous improvement in our context they seemed somewhat limiting and add another overhead to a lean, fast, agile operation.

So what I asked was - what happens if we applied the Pareto principle to Kaizen (改善)? And the simplest answers, the 20% of 20% of 20% of input was one that I was told years ago in that world famous explorers club, the Royal Geographical Society in London.

And the simple answer was is that what one needed to do was make sure every person in the organization was constantly thinking about how they could be doing things better, refining processes and questioning themselves.
