Another introduction to Improvement Kata was held yesterday with companies in the St Marys area. NWIRC’s Tom Weible, a TWI Institute Certified Kata Trainer, facilitated the 2-hour session to offer a glimpse at Improvement Kata- a lifelong skill that makes continuous improvement second nature. Improvement Kata engages employees in deliberate and daily practice of continuous improvement creating a pattern that becomes second nature; enables teams to navigate together towards the same goals, address obstacles, and develop solutions; and promotes measuring and evaluating the impact of any improvement efforts.

Weible is teaching a 2-day Improvement Kata training in St Marys on August 21-22. As an added bonus, participants enrolling in this program also receive a two-hour post-workshop onsite coaching session to work on an actual improvement at their company using kata skills.
