In the course of the 2013 E.C budget year preparation phase plan a three days (20/01-22/01/13) orientation and discussion on the new EKI 10 year’s strategic document was held. All the staff members of the Institute take part in the program and raised several constrictive ideas which will help the smooth implementation of the plan. The program made a significant contribution to the creation of a common understanding among the employees of the Institute on the key issues of the document.  The execution of the new strategic plan was officially started right after the orientation and it’s expected to uplift the Ethiopian Kaizen implementation to the new level.
