Have you ever found yourself asking?:

The 2019 Kata Experience provides a forum that will deliver answers.
So, what exactly is Kata? Kata translated from Japanese, means “routine” or “practice”. Kata is a key component that allows companies to develop and strengthen the problem-solving ability of their most valuable resources: the employees. Traditionally companies teach employees the routines necessary to solve today’s problems. Kata provides a ‘routine’ or ‘practice’ to develop innovative solutions to today’s known and tomorrow’s unknown problems.
The 2019 Kata Experience will help you and your team to truly explore the limitless capabilities of Continuous Improvement. You will learn a methodology to become comfortable experimenting to generate new ideas and unlock success.
