Does Kaizen sacrifice the quality of a process by speeding it up?

This is not about loosening regulations or commitment to quality. Teams are looking for efficiencies in workflow, paper processing, number of steps in a process, etc. In fact, the goal of Lean is to enhance the ability to carry out the agency mission by shifting more time and resources to core mission activities.
