This two-day workshop is based on Mike Rother’s book "Toyota Kata." The training focuses on the Improvement Kata, which is a routine for rapid Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycles, and the Coaching Kata, which is a routine leaders can develop to improve the skills of others. Together, they provide the methodology to create a culture of daily improvement. Through hands-on activities, you will have the opportunity to practice both Katas during the workshop.

Topics covered:

  • Overview of improvement and coaching Kata
  • How your current continuous improvement practices compare to Kata
  • Improvement Kata in detail
  • Coaching Kata in detail
  • Deploying Kata in your organization

Appropriate for

  • Managers, supervisors, and lead operators who have exposure to problem solving and root cause analysis.
