Abstract or Summary
  • This study was conducted to support a research project sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The purpose of the NSF research project was to determine how to design kaizen events that result in both short term and long term performance improvements. One of the tools developed to evaluate the effectiveness of different kaizen events was a kick-off survey. The use of surveys has been criticized in the past because many researchers do not verify that surveys are valid. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the validity of the kaizen event kick-off survey. The validity of the kaizen event kick-off survey was evaluated with a validity survey. The validity survey was given to university students who then rated how well each of the kick-off survey items measured the underlying kick-off survey constructs. The ratings from the validity survey were analyzed using factor analysis and Wilcoxon signed ranks test. The factor analysis indicated that all of the items except for GDF7, ACC3, and ACC5 demonstrated content validity and construct validity. The Wilcoxon signed ranks test demonstrated content validity for all of the items.
