Lean Transformation and Kata

Workshop Overview

The Lean Transformation Framework (LTF) is a framework that challenges us to think strategically about lean implementation. Kata, in the lean context, are routines for learning and improvement. The LTF is the “big picture”. Kata is about improvement rituals and thoughtfulness in daily practice at the situational level. Effective practice (in the service of customers and other stakeholders) requires combining strategy and action.

Lean is a management system that is directed by conscious purpose. The LTF emphasises purpose, direction, “True North”. The “Kata” emphasises engagement, thoughtfulness and learning at all levels of an organisation, but especially at the direct value adding level.
