The following principles are allocated: integration, hierarchy and feedback, continuity and consistency, the basis of mentality with a universal approach, a new quality of leadership, process of thinking, elimination of stereotypes, deviations control from a standard process, the dynamic changes of tools and targets, identification and personification, the principle of a «baton». Classification identifies are allocated: aspects of the review, areas for improvement, resources, spheres and so on. A list of classical kaidzen tools is pointed out within the classification according to the degree of modernity.
