Toyota Kata – habits for continuous improvements Lean IT Summit 2013

In October I had the great opportunity to be part of the 3rd Lean IT Summit in Paris. On the second day of the conference I talked about Toyota Kata – habits for continuous improvements.

Below you can find the recording of that talk and my slides.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle

What are the habits, or routines, you need to put in place to continuously strive for excellence? How do we create a culture of continuous improvement?

In this session you will learn about continuous improvement routines that help you close the gap between your current condition and you desired future state. You will learn how you can probe through the unknown in small deliberate steps. You will also be introduced to the leadership routines to build a continuous improvement culture. These routines are what we call Toyota Kata.
