Kata Practitioner Day: Online Event!

November 16, 2017
10:00AM – 3:30PM Eastern Time

Only $195 per connection (unlimited attendance per connection)

Mike Rother’s book, Toyota Kata, launched a revolution of sorts. The book gave birth to a passionate community of improvement professionals who recognized the transformative nature of the Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata on an organization’s workforce. Much has happened since then, but we’ve only scratched the surface as two new Kata books are adding to an already rich conversation.

So, what’s happening in the Kata Community today? LOTS! Join us for Lean Frontiers Direct: Kata Edition where you’ll hear from some of the community’s most experienced Kata practitioners. This LIVE online event allows you to learn alongside your team, ask probing questions of the presenters, and watch on-demand replays for up to 3-months after the event.

ADDED BONUS: Learn how to run your OWN Kata Practitioner Day at your facility and invite the community!
