Improvement Kata & Coaching Kata Experience – Class is Full

Description:  Led by Master Coach Julie Simmons, this four-hour class uses a simulation to teach the pattern of the Improvement Kata.  Attendees will practice Grasping the Current Condition, Establishing a Target Condition, and using PDCA to experiment towards the established Target Condition.  Additionally, attendees will practice two Coaching routines using information gathered in Current Condition, Target Condition, and experimentation.

Audience: Those who are new to the Kata approach who want to learn the improvement pattern or those who would benefit from a refresher.   Additionally, those who want to learn the coaching model and incorporate it into the Kata pattern.
