Using Kaikaku is like setting off a bomb in the workplace. It is dangerous and revolutionary. It breaks existing paradigms and throws out old ways of thinking. Kaikaku is taking a sledgehammer to a system/process. Due to the large nature and ergo expensive nature of these changes they are normally top-down decisions. Also, Kaikaku tends to be done at a larger scale.
