Toyota Kata is a unique coaching model for developing Scientific Thinking, a process that helps us advance through unchartered territories and change to a culture of daily continuous improvement. Kata was presented to us by the researcher Mike Rother in 2009 when he spend several hours visiting and studying Toyota from 2004-2009 to answer the following questions:
What unseen managerial routines and thinking lie behind Toyota's success with continuous improvement and adaption?
How can other companies develop similar routines and thinking in their organisations?
Kata hugely compliments an organisation that is new in its Lean journey or well advanced.
In this event you will be provided with an introduction to the Improvement Kata, using a simple exercise to demonstrate the 4 steps.
Step 1: Understand the Direction or Challenge
Step 2: Grasp the Current Condition
Step 3: Establish the next Target Condition
Step 4: Experiment Toward the Target Condition
