The Toyota Kata Methodology

The Toyota Kata methodology of improvement enables a company to grow their people while incrementally moving the company towards a desired future vision.
Toyota Kata works to change the culture, so that gains that are made not only stick, but improve regularly. It develops the relationships of front-line supervision with top management, and gives leaders a chance to continually guide their subordinates in problem solving and teamwork skills.
Toyota Kata’s methodology of daily improvements cycles will move the company towards a desired vision. Participants are able to take the company to new heights that were previously thought impossible, all with existing resources.

When companies develop their people, wonderful things can happen.
