The purpose of this survey is to obtain feedback from the lean practitioner community on its awareness, use and perceptions of Toyota Kata, or simply Kata as its referred to in this survey
The results will help inform the development LERC’s Kata research and the work of a Kata Research Network Group, that is being formed to coordinate research plans and activity. If you wish to join the Kata Research Network Group, please get in touch with LERC.
It’s a short survey that should take less than 10 minutes to complete.
Respondents should be managers involved in continuous improvement (CI) related activities in their organisations, for example in production, service delivery, planning, facilitation or teaching/education roles. The questions relate to your current employer.
You do not need to know much (or anything!) about Kata to complete the survey, nor does your organisation have to be using Kata.
A brief description of Kata:
Kata is a method of making small, incremental change toward improvements every day, involving structured routines consisting of patterns. Practicing kata (patterns) consistently and deliberately forms a habit, which helps develop new skills. With new skills comes increased confidence in the ability to recognise and make small changes that keep a person (or a process) continuously improving.
