(EN) Toyota Kata - the organizational muscle memory for continuous learning and improvement

A session at Lean Kanban France 2013

5:30pm to 7:30pm (PMT)

"Toyota Kata – habits for continuous improvements

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” - Aristotle
What are the habits, or routines, you need to put in place to continuously strive for excellence? How do we create a culture of continuous improvement?

In this session you will learn about continuous improvement routines that help you close the gap between your current condition and you desired future state. You will learn how you can probe through the unknown in small deliberate steps. You will also be introduced to the leadership routines to build a continuous improvement culture. These routines are what we call Toyota Kata.
