Kata Course
School of Lean

We will soon be releasing a new course on Kata, combining studio-based instruction with real-world examples at a major aircraft company.

This could be the most powerful Gemba Academy course. Kata will help your organization define the desired end state, obstacles to achieving that state, and how to run experiments to methodically move toward that desired state. Therefore, it can be used in all areas of an organization, from project management to employee coaching.
