TOYOTA KATA WORKSHOP
Toyota Kata has come to define a practice that is rapidly spreading throughout the Lean community.
What is a Kata? A kata is a pattern you practice to learn a skill and mindset. Through practice the pattern of a kata becomes second nature – done with little conscious attention – as for example, riding a bicycle. Once mastered it is an unconscious skill applied to navigating the road ahead.
With Toyota Kata, Mike Rother, the Shingo Prize winning author of Learning to See has advanced the practice of lean, providing a systematic, scientific routine that can be applied to any goal. It has inspired a community of practitioners who are building a sustainable lean culture.
