What is Kata?

Kata, commonly known in martial arts, is practicing a pattern of thinking and behaving until executed without hesitation. Think about the practice involved in learning an instrument or playing a sport. Toyota Kata is a structured way for managers and employees to achieve continuous improvement goals with a clear path to get there. According to Mike Rother, Researcher and Author of Toyota Kata, it’s teaching methods rather than solutions, a key component to Toyota’s efficiency.
