The Improvement Kata & Coaching Kata combine

a scientific working pattern with techniques of

deliberate practice, to make scientific thinking

a teachable meta-skill anyone can learn.  These

foundational thinking habits are a basis for:

How do we prepare for the future when we don’t know what

the future will bring?  We can’t predict how to get from A to B...

we’re stumped and overwhelmed (it’s too complicated!), there

are time constraints and economic pressure.  How can we get

comfortable with challenging goals and navigate the grey zone

between here and there?  How do you sustain this?  Answers

to these questions are in this website.

Welcome to the TK website.  My name is Mike Rother.  Toyota

Kata will change your view of teamwork, management, education

and what it takes to shape an organization’s culture.  This site is a

companion to the book, and a place we put things we're learning.
