Continuous improvement is the ongoing improvement of products, services, or processes through incremental and breakthrough improvements. Some scholars make a distinction between continuous improvement and continual improvement. Continual improvement refers to general processes of improvement and encompassing discontinuous or non-linear improvements—that is, many different approaches covering different areas.

Continuous improvement is a subset of continual improvement, focusing on linear, incremental improvement within an existing process. When this distinction is made, continuous improvement is closely associated with statistical quality control. An alternative definition of continuous improvement is the identification of opportunities for streamlining the work process.
