TWI and Kata: Making the Connection
Within months after Toyota Kata hit the book shelves, the TWI Community began talking. They discussed the complimentary nature of Kata and TWI and began exploring the intersections. Since that time, a book has been published (The 7 Kata: Toyota Kata, TWI, and Lean Training), presentations delivered (Toyota Kata & TWI J-Programs), webinars recorded (TWI and Kata: A Problem Solving Approach), and much MUCH more.
When you see “Kata” on the TWI Summit agenda in several places (including full day workshops), now you know why! It’s because there’s a high level of collaboration between the two communities and new knowledge is being developed that compliment your current and future Lean and TWI efforts.
