This book shows you how to scale up practice of the Improvement Kata and

Coaching Kata throughout an organization, to achieve challenging goals.

Completely illustrated, TKC provides a picture of how you can develop

and mobilize creative capability, build a deliberate, scientific-thinking

culture, and make aligned continuous improvement part of daily work.


TKC is our follow-on publication to Learning to See, the

popular book about value stream mapping.  Once you have a

future-state map, TKC shows you exactly what to do with it.

All value stream mappers will find TKC to be a useful next step.

Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata.  It has instructions and examples for all
