Lean for Leadership

MAP200 - 8.00 Hours

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.

Objectives

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.
