Course Description

This one day workshop teaches participants how to deploy both the improvement and coaching Kata within an organization. The workshop provides a treatment of the Toyota Kata’s theoretical framework as well as its practical application.

The theoretical rationale for the Toyota Kata includes a preference for the use of the scientific method, the use of deliberate practice in the development or transitioning of mental models, and the deployment of organizational continuous improvement.

The practical application includes how data is collected for determining the current condition (diagramming, process characteristics, process metrics, and outcome metrics), and the development of a target condition. Workshop content also includes determining obstacles and the cycling of PDCA (plan, do check, act) experiments.

The workshop is not a simulation of any business process but is rather a demonstration of how the Toyota Kata applies to confronting challenging situations, including continuous improvement.


Upon completion of the workshop, the participants should be able to:
Conduct a daily improvement Kata
Understand the importance of coaching
Distinguish organizational goals from value stream challenges, process target conditions, and local obstacles.


There are no prerequisites for this course.

Attendance Requirements

To meet attendance requirements, participants must review each training module and complete all required course assignments, activities, quizzes, and/or end of course exam.

When Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger, III amazingly landed the U.S. Airways plane he was piloting into the Hudson River, emergency responders sprang into action. TEEX received the following message the same day…

Please thank the staff of TEEX for their help in preparing our first responders and private sector for this port emergency. Everyone is complimenting the unified command operational effectiveness. Good outcomes during emergencies always start with good training.
