Adaptive Improvement Habits (KATA)

PEOPLE can increase the effectiveness of their IMPROVEMENT efforts by taking our KATA course, because it FOCUSES ON LEARNING AN IMPROVEMENT AND COACHING HABIT THAT IS ADAPTIVE

Have you ever wondered if all of that improvement is in the right direction? Maybe you’ve always developed an initial plan and stuck to it, feeling that it isn’t quite adaptive enough to change as you learn. This course is all about improving towards your big goal and being able to navigate reality as you learn. Adaptive – “having an ability to change to suit changing conditions”

The team “got “ the concept , were fully engaged and worked well together and have taken their learning back to shop floor and already are putting what they learnt into practice. We have started this journey and are now looking forward to the wins that it will definitely come from this excellent experience
