The Toyota Kata ‘Starter Kata’ practice routines play well with and enhance just about any improvement approach. The example presented here illustrates how the scientific-thinking TK routines help make the Lean A3 process function more as intended.
Many teams incorporate the Toyota Kata ‘experimenting record’ Starter Kata into their A3s, leading them to perform more experiments and learn faster & deeper. The first few experiments are often about getting a clearer understanding of the current condition, which helps teams establish better target conditions and expedites learning cycles.
