  • Jumpstart your Kata practice
  • Learn essential Kata concepts and behaviors, in a proven, learn-by-doing format.


Kata Simulation

 This 1-day program intertwines knowledge of the Kata process and principles with a realistic, hands-on simulation to illustrate the effectiveness and elegant simplicity of Kata. The simulation serves as an introduction and foundation for organizations and individuals new to Kata.

 Kata 10-Hour Program

 This program clearly demonstrates essential Kata concepts, scientific thinking, and the behavioral principles upon which Kata is built. The program provides expert guidance in establishing current and target conditions, identifying obstacles and PDCA-based experimentation. Much of the time in this learn-by-doing program is spent practicing the Coaching Kata while mentored by Certified Kata Trainers. Upon completion, participants are ready to start using Kata in their daily work.
