In 2009 Mike Rother identified a very large, and until then, missing piece of the “lean jigsaw puzzle” that very, very few companies manage to fully put together. Through his book “Toyota Kata” we learned of 2 key behavioral patterns that until then we’d allowed to be hidden by our detailed examination of just the tools – the things we could easily see and thus easily copy. Or so we thought …

Acquiring Toyota Kata knowledge in advance will build a greater understanding that will accelerate your skill development. We are all more motivated to learn if we understand.

Organizational benefits like momentum and sustainability will grow as more individuals gain this knowledge.

By enrolling here you will have access to many combined years of experienced Toyota Kata practitioners condensed into 200 minutes of discussion and an hours worth of questions framed by Oscar Roche, a TWI Institute Toyota Kata Master Trainer. You may also access a Free Preview being a summary of the content drawn from Oscars closing remarks of the live webinar on Dec 18, 2018.

Along with several case study examples, you will be taken through the why of Toyota Kata, followed by a session on each of the 4 steps of the Improvement Kata. Oscar Roche and Joakim Bjurström (TWI Institute Toyota Kata Master Trainers) are joined by Sam Wagner from Fast Global Solutions, a very experienced practitioner and Scott Laundry from the TWI Institute Syracuse. Scott is a very active coach and second coach in many organizations as well as being an Institute Toyota Kata 10-Hour Trainer.

Our system is an efficient and effective way of learning about Toyota Kata if reading is not your thing. You can “come and go” as you please.
