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.

Additionally, attendees will practice two Coaching routines using information gathered in Current Condition, Target Condition, and experimentation.
