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 also our follow-on publication to the Learning to See

book, about value stream mapping.  Once you have a

future-state map, TKC shows you exactly what can be

done with it.  Any value stream mapper will find TKC to

be a useful guide.


For a quick overview, read the TKC Preface -->

This practical guidebook shows you how to do each step of the Improvement

Kata and Coaching Kata.  It has instructions for each Starter Kata and will accompany both the learner and the coach through the entire IK/CK process.
