Kaizen culture in this paper enables a change process in a seamless manner supporting innovation to optimize operational performance. This study aims to support theory and practice. Firstly, this study findings can be applied to improve operational performance which is pivotal to business sustainability among Malaysian Manufacturing Companies (MMC). Secondly, it also contributes to extend the Socio-Technical Systems (STS) theory. Thirdly, this study has the potential contribution towards the society as resources are scarce and waste elimination is imperative. Lastly, this study may provide some understanding on why these companies are more successful in securing operational performance from innovation implementation than other seemingly similar companies.
