3rd Annual Midwest Kata Practitioner Day

Thursday, January 10 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

$50 – $125

Event Description

Kata is a Continuous Improvement (Lean) methodology to develop everyday habits, skill sets and capabilities in people, aligned with and in support of achieving the long-term objectives of the organization. This one day engaging experience is brought to you by a volunteer group from Oshkosh Corp, TIDI Products, Fox Valley Technical College, Generative Local Community Institute, Simmons Knife & Saw and Optima Associates.

The book “Toyota Kata” published in 2009 by Mike Rother was the beginning of a different way of thinking about and deploying Lean. Today many organizations have made a practice of the Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata as part of daily work. This helps companies develop the capability of their people while simultaneously achieving challenging goals.

• How do we keep improvement going?

• How do we align our organization so that daily improvements move us toward strategic goals?

• How can we work to develop solutions scientifically, instead of trying to implement preconceived solutions?

The Kata Practitioner Day is a forum for everyone to hear first-hand from regional companies practicing Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata.

This event will be held at Fox Valley Technical College in the D.J. Bordini Center
