Many interview questions are a little misleading. There may be a piece of information they are trying to get that the question does not directly address. If you know what is really being asked, you will be able to give stronger answers.
The question, “How do you define continuous improvement may seem a little vague at first. You should define continuous improvement, but it is more important that you demonstrate that you are willing to improve. Continuous improvement is usually a method of combating sliding efficiency as employees settle into their jobs. The interviewer wants to make sure you will be able to consistently perform as a high level.
Points to Emphasize
Keep what the employer means when he says continuous improvement. Focus your answer around this definition.
Mistakes You Should Avoid
This is a complicated question. It can be easy to get sidetracked or to lose focus on what is being asked. Try to avoid these common mistakes.
When answering this question, you should try to make your answer sound something like this:
To me, continuous improvement is an attitude. Recognizing that there are ways you can improve yourself and taking the steps to become better at your job. I always try to exhibit this attitude. I welcome review and constructive criticism if it will allow me to improve myself. I do not think there is a point when continuous improvement stops being important either.
