Toyota Kata - Daily Practice for Scientific Skill, Mindset, and Culture
In this session, Mike Rother will discuss the research findings behind the books, Toyota Kata, the Toyota Kata Practice Guide, and Toyota Kata Culture. Developing new ways of thinking means practicing targeted behaviors daily. Practicing Improvement Kata/Coaching Kata (IK/CK) is a way of developing scientific skills and mindset, for achieving challenging goals, that gets integrated into the normal daily operation of a team or organization. Kata are structured routines that you practice deliberately, especially at the beginning, so their pattern becomes a habit and leaves you with new skills that you can build on.
