Lean Transformation (including Kata) - Johannesburg

Nov 27 - 28, 2017
Lean Institute Africa
Definitive Conferencing, Kruin Street, Isando, South Africa

This is an expanded workshop that has evolved out of our Toyota Kata workshop.

Workshop summary:

What are the Lean Transformation Framework (LTF) and Kata?
The LTF is a framework that challenges us to think strategically about lean implementation. Kata, in the lean context, are routines for learning and improvement.

Why combine them?
The LTF is the “big picture” and strategic. 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.

By combining LTF and Kata material in one 2-day workshop we aim to accelerate your strategic adoption and effective use of lean. Management systems, leader behaviour, capability building: these things and more will be put to you as essential components of your approach to achieving your purpose – personally and organisationally.
