Kaizen is Japanese for “improvement” – activities that continuously improve all function and improve all employees.
Honda believes in constant improvement. Yesterday’s achievements may be celebrated, but there is no resting place. Because the best never rest. Kaizen is guide to finding new ways to improve.
Documentation is everything. The first step of Kaizen is to document how a process really happens. In the ideal world, we may know what is supposed to happen, but what really happens is all that matters. Take a moment to document all the variations of a process to identify waste.
Once wasted effort has be identified. It is time to eliminate as many unnecessary steps as possible. This will increase efficiency. Once these changes are in place it is now time to inspect this new reality.
Maybe the fixes didn’t really fix everything? Time to make more changes. Verify that these changes have been made. And measure the improvement, comparing to where the process started. Once the improved process makes progress, standardize the changes as the new way to conduct operations.
Now is the time to celebrate this achievement. The celebration is a necessary step in Kaizen, because efforts made should be recognized.
Enjoy your success, but remember there is no resting place. Now it is time to improve again. This is important! Continuous improvement is necessary to prevent falling behind.
With an increase of cases across the country, businesses are rapidly embracing the omnipresent convenience of online shopping. Before COVID-19, not all businesses were onboard with the digital age. Many businesses clung to in-person, cash transactions, and phone calls to conduct business, but now there is a greater incentive to modernize.
For those who prefer to shop on a mobile device and do not particularly enjoy making phone calls, the world is changing to fit the way you’ve always wanted to shop.
Car Dealerships are not known for selling vehicles online, they have dabbled in the digital space, but have not fully dived in yet. This is changing! While not all aspects of the deal can be done remotely, much if it can be, and I imagine eventually all of it will be.
Look for Buy Online Button

The COVID-19 global crisis has disrupted our business and daily lives. Official word has just been received that our annual Team Honda Week of Service, a week where all Honda dealerships are encouraged to participate in community service, has been postponed.
Community service is typically done in person, which conflicts with the national need to practice social distancing. However, when the need for social distancing is lifted, Honda will reschedule Team Honda Week of Service.
In San Antonio, Texas, Fiesta also had to be postponed. Fiesta is a local San Antonio holiday that spans over two weeks. Most local holidays in San Antonio are celebrated in the first half of a calendar year, whereas most significant national holidays are celebrated toward the end of the year. These would include the Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas, and if you include New Year’s Eve.
These are events many of us look forward to and are very sad to be missing out on at present. However, we intend to participate in all these events belatedly. Especially, Team Honda Week of Service and Fiesta for San Antonio!
We understand that these are challenging times. Hill Country Honda wants to thank those who are the front lines of keeping our community together. First responders, healthcare professionals, grocers, and employees of essential businesses, we appreciate you!
As a token of our appreciation, we would like to extend to you a $500 bonus on the purchase of a new vehicle.
