Toyota Kata

Toyota Kata Helps Change the Way People Approach Problems.

Toyota Kata is a methodical approach to helping companies develop their people. It’s a coaching routine through which the coach guides the student to achieve goals by adhering to the process. Toyota Kata is focused on an ultimate goal and helps the student reach the goal by identifying and achieving smaller interim goals along the way. A common saying in Toyota Kata is that “if a student hasn’t learned, the teacher hasn’t taught”. This routine helps the student to learn to break down projects into manageable pieces while enabling the teacher to develop their coaching skills.
