Description

Product Description

Take advantage of your organization’s brainpower with Kata-driven continuous improvement

“This is the first book I have read that provides a clear picture of what it takes to develop and mobilize creative capability across an organization, to achieve challenging goals.” Jeffrey K. Liker, author of The Toyota Way (from the Foreword)

Nobody drives continuous improvement in real, tangible ways like Toyota, where everyone at every level works toward common, customer-related goals. At Toyota, continuous improvement is habitual.

In his groundbreaking book Toyota Kata, Mike Rother revealed management practices that drive Toyota’s success in providing value to their customers. Now, Rother and coauthor Gerd Aulinger provide the routines and know-how for scaling these practices across your entire organization. It all builds on five simple foundational questions at every level:

What is the target condition?
What is the actual condition?
What obstacles stand in the way of the target condition?
What is the next step?
What have you learned from taking that step?

Illustrated cover to cover, Toyota Kata Culture helps you visualize exactly how these methods work―so you can start putting them into action right away. You’ll learn how to develop your own iterative process of trial and adjustment, build a deliberate, scientific-thinking culture that grows capability, and make aligned strategic continuous improvement part of everyday work.

Achieve your goals and differentiate your organization by following the proven formula laid out in Toyota Kata Culture.

Though I feel you could approach this in many ways, for example, kata your kata approach . I think Mike Rother and Gerd Aulinger did a great job at outlining a good concept people can follow to spread the method. Where I work, we focus a lot on developing peoples kata capability. This book is really about what happens next once your people are kata capable. Outstanding Work!

If you can''t explain it clearly, your really don''t understand it. I read through the book fairly quickly, and feel I now have a decent understanding of the Kata''s in action, thanks to Mr. Rother''s thorough knowledge.

Very bookish and boring

I read this book and stopped after a few pages. It’s too technical and boring. You need to have a compartmental mind to understand the Japanese way or working.

Kata Culture really resonates with me. It helps me fill some gaps in how I was perceiving and communicating the power in practicing IK/CK up-and-down through the chain of command. I like the simplicity in which Mike and Gerd describe the process, using a very relatable situation.

The Kata mindset is amazing and provides unlimited potential for those wanting to use scientific thinking to move forward in any situation. Once understood, the four concepts of Understanding the Direction, Grasping the Current Condition, Establishing the next Target Condition, and Experimenting Toward the Target Condition has unlimited potential. This book provides some great examples of how this works within an organization.

Little value for money, and misses the point about company culture

I am a big fan of learning organisations and agile thinking, yet I value lessons from the past and like to understand what led to some common structural organizations. The Toyota Kata Culture book looked very appealing to me as a certified project manager and agile coach. It highlights some interesting ideas about how to establish a continuously learning organization. However, the ~140 pages could have been summarized in probably no more than 30-40 pages due to the amount of repetition and details. The book also insists on how the process implies changing the company culture, but it gives little to no guidance on how to achieve this culture change. And finally it describes the method in a strictly hierarchical way that feels more akin to a 1980s command-and-control organization than a modern, safe-to-learn, cooperative organization (how do you think your team will react when you give them the non-negotiable challenge of improving their output 16x, like the daily changeover mentioned on page 34?). Besides the content, the spiral bound version (which I thought would be more appropriate for the book format) feels somewhat fragile and has an inconvenient format, yet brings no real benefit, for twice the price. Overall, this was an expensive proposition with little value. Hint: save your money and do a quick search on the Internet for improvement kata.
