About the TWI + Kata Summit Europe

This is the official page for the TWI & Toyota Kata Summit Europe, which combines the TWI Summit & KataCon launched first by us at Lean Frontiers in US. The TWI Summit dates back to 2007 and the first KataCon started in 2014 together with Mike Rother.

We at Lean Frontiers and Business Through People (BTP) teamed up in 2014, to bring these events to Europe and have ever since hosted these yearly events in Europe

We're going virtual...
And we're excited about it! Join us for a 5-Day Learning Experience!

We are very excited to see the growth and interest in these topics individually and even more excited about how they complement one another. If you have noted our new event mascot, it is representative of combining your heart, brain and skills: melding TWI & Toyota Kata together into one for ultimate change.

This is where the magic happens.

Join us for the Virtual 2021 TWI & Kata Summit EU

Summit at a Glance

An online experience is certainly different than in-person, but not any less valuable.
Through many conversations and surveys, we’ve built a program that makes this event valuable to the TWI and Kata Communities

in ways you’ve shared are most meaningful.

Lights, camera, action!

We’re looking to create a sense of community, much the same as an in-person Summit. To that end we’re asking participants to turn on webcams and even connect in smaller breakout rooms. See you in June!
