Toy­ota Kata On-site Instruction

In today’s rapid­ly chang­ing world, we need every per­son in our orga­ni­za­tion to under­stand why and how to engage in con­tin­u­ous improve­ment. Every leader and man­ag­er must also know and embrace their role to sup­port­ers and coach their peo­ple. The Toy­ota Kata approach accom­plish­es both of these aims by prac­tic­ing the improve­ment kata and the coach­ing kata dur­ing the nat­ur­al course of dai­ly work.

For self-paced study, view our online course.

We can deliv­er a one-day prac­ti­cal intro­duc­tion, mul­ti-day train-the-train­er or cus­tomized Toy­ota Kata work­shop on-site at your location.
