It is indeed the daily behavior of the people inside the framework of the organization that defines the culture. The Improvement Kata and the Coaching Kata are not new, but they are explained here in a way that makes them an integrated whole and accessible to anyone who will take the time to study this excellent work.
He described what is essentially the Improvement Kata and to a lesser degree the Coaching Kata. I remember how shocked I was to read his prescription for revitalizing continuous improvement -- i. He was of course referring to rapid PDCA cycles where learning rapidly builds upon learning through failure and success in a never ending procession toward ever better processes.
The Coaching Kata is what ties it all together so that through "respect for people" the Improvement Kata can grow progressively stronger and more pervasive throughout the organization. This is the key to what I've always thought of as "continuously improving the improvement system". Without the Coaching Kata, each improvement effort, regardless of how successful, is robbed of its full potential to create not just process change, but change in the people who created the process change.
This evolution of the people, not just the processes, that is the key. Rother explains how this works with clarity and precision.
I highly recommend this book. Don't waste time on the others until you read this one. Hardcover Verified download. I'd previously given this book a 5 star review based upon reading. I took the role of mentor in the teaching kata, and guided my Production Manager to help me write an A3 for how to dramatically reshape our shipping department. I didn't feel entirely comfortable, as I didn't have solid experience with ANY of the tools which are touted to fill up most "Lean" books.
But by simply simply writing and mentoring the teaching of an A3, as taught in this book, we discovered all sorts of issues we hadn't been considering. And then, when we began to implement the formal plan -- as this book forewarned us to expect -- we uncovered a lot of additional considerations. That was several weeks ago. It's a coaching pattern to help you teach the Improvement Kata thinking pattern. The Coaching Kata gives managers and supervisors a standardized approach to facilitate Improvement Kata skill development in daily work.
The coach needs to know both the Improvement Kata and the Coaching Kata! From one of implementing pre-defined solutions, to one of actively developing new solutions Psychology and brain research are clear: Humans have the ability to alter their mindset. Our brain is equipped for learning new rules, patterns and habits. Neurons form circuits within the brain, which underlie perception and thought. For communication between two neurons to take place, an electrical impulse travels down an axon to a synapse, or gap, where transmission occurs.
Both the strength of connection between neurons ease of information transmission and the number of connections increase with use. Whatever you focus on and practice - with associated emotions - weaves a habit or pattern into your thinking.
Emotion helps determine what to imprint. It will be the responsibility of the Coach to give the Learner procedural guidance that makes the Learner successful in overcoming obstacles on the way to their target condition. The Improvement Kata. If we want a Lean revolution, then we need to shift emphasis from staff-led, episodic improvement efforts, to daily efforts led by middle managers.
Supervisor Area Manager Daily Which is a universal, not Toyota-specific, science- based approach. The Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata are practice routines for teaching and transferring that approach. Once you develop proficiency with the Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata you can evolve them into kata that suit your organization. Lutz Engel The more people in an organization who get to higher skill levels with the Improvement Kata pattern: We called what we observed Lean, which suggests always minimizing or maximizing.
This idea easily fits into our existing thinking in business, making it harder for us to see the different management approach Toyota is taking.
That can involve minimizing, optimizing, or whatever you wish to achieve. This is content and situation specific How we go about it The Improvement Kata This is content free and universal What we work on The pivotal change proposed by study of Toyota is not in what an organization does, but in how the organization does it So it makes sense to ask: We change by practicing a different behavior.
That, over time, leads us to think about things differently. What pattern of acting and thinking -- what teachable, transferrable routine -- can we practice? With the Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata we have routines that can be applied and practiced in any setting, in order to develop capability and behavior consistent with systems thinking.
The third step is to run the experiment. As we run the experiment, we should closely observe and collect appropriate metrics to tell us how the experiment went.
Forth, now it is time to compare the difference between the predication and the actual outcome of the experiment. This is the time to reflect and learn. The delta between the predication and the outcome is really our opportunity to learn. If we always get the expected result, we have not really learned anything.
Based on what we have learned it is now time to adjust our theoretical model, take on the next obstacle with a new hypothesis. We repeat this cycle until we have reached the Target Condition or the time has expired for the current Target Condition. When the Target Condition is reached or it has expired we loop back to step one of the Improvement Kata, Understand the Direction.
It is not hard too intellectually understand how to do it. It may even sound as if it is too easy too really work. Intellectually understand and actually do it is two totally different ball games. You need to practice and practice too actually get it right. Toyota Kata is by design set up to give you support as you practice. The Coaching Kata provides this support. The Coaching Kata is supporting the Improvement Kata by helping the learners to focus on learning, improving, and pointing in the right direction.
Purpose With the Coaching Kata the leaders of the organization should take a coaching and supporting role with the learners, the teams. The coach would be the one that is challenging the learners to take a small step beyond their current knowledge threshold, to challenge themselves.
When practicing the Improvement Kata the focus should be on one obstacle at a time. Only focus on obstacles standing in the way towards the next Target Condition. It is the role of the coach to help the learners to keep this focus. In a full implantation, this means that there is a coaching-learner relationship throughout the whole organization on all levels. Every leader would be acting as coach for their team. For every PDCA cycle, experiment, we run to remove the obstacles that are stopping us from operating as described in the Target Condition we go through the following main questions as describes on Coaching Kata card.
Going through the question card 1. What is the Target Condition? The purpose of the question is to reinforce the focus of where we want to move. It is a way for the coach to understand if there is an alignment of definition of the Target Condition. It is also an opportunity to understand if there is an alignment of the purpose of the Target Condition.
What is the Actual Condition now? When asking this question the learners, the team, should be able to describe the how the process is currently operating. The learned should be able to show the current description of the process, the process metrics and the output metrics. Now it is time to turn the card over.
You can skip this if this is the first time you ran the Coaching Kata after you set a new Target Condition. With this question, we repeat what the last PDCA cycle, experiment, was. We have the opportunity to compare what we set out to do, and what we really did.
If there is a difference, the coach has the opportunity to explore why we could not do what we set out to do. We look back at what we expected would be the outcome of the last PDCA cycle, experiment. It is very easy to define what we expected after the fact. This step help us remember what we actually defined as the expectations so we can create a greater understand of what really happened. Now we take a real look at what really happened when we ran the last PDCA cycle, experiment.
We look at the current condition. We look at what changed when we ran the last PDCA cycle, experiment. Doing this explicitly helps us learn more about how our process works.
This is probably the most significant question in the Coaching Kata, and Toyota Kata all together. Toyota Kata is about growing people, teaching people to learn how to learn. As we learn, we can use that learning to improve our processes. Do not haphazardly go through this step! Reflecting on what we have learned and how that will feed into the next PDCA cycle is the focus of this question.
We should compare what we expected would happen and what really happened.
The delta between the two would be a big part of our potential learning. The bigger the delta, the bigger potential for learning.
With no, or a very small delta, we are probably just late implementing the change. With a big delta, we need take a good look at our understanding and assumptions of how things work. We need to update our theory and metal model of how things work. This can have a profound impact on our next experiments and Target Condition as we move towards our vision. What Obstacles do you think are preventing you from reaching the target condition?
