Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Are your retros starting to feel tired? Is nothing really changing? Are you curious about an approach that you might want to add to your toolbox?
We all have likely seen that “you get what you measure”. Our experience has also shown that you improve what you practice. The Toyota Kata is an approach to cultural change that brings these ideas together.
Come hear about the Toyota Kata, how we used it to help shift the culture of an entire department, and how and when to implement it in yours.
In this session, we will:
  • Cover the basics - What is it? Why do it?
  • Talk through an example - How has it worked in a practical example of cultural change?
  • Work through an experiment - How might you structure a kata in your organization?
  • Get a kit
Learning Outcomes:
  • An improved understanding of the Toyota Kata, its role in culture change, and how to use it.
  • The kit walks through the structure piece by piece to:
  • - Create your own experimental starting points
  • - Evaluate what change would make the most impact
  • - Analyze how to proceed
  • - Get equipped to apply the new understanding when you return to your teams
