Kata Teaches the Meta-Patterns of Innovation

Key points will be:

– Companies such as Menlo and Toyota, and even historic breakthrough innovators such as the Wright Brothers all share common meta-patterns.

– These patterns embed cycles of learning into “the way they do things.”

– Getting these patterns embedded in our organizations is what we (everyone here) is striving to do.

– Kata is a way to practice those patterns.

– However, while you are embedded learning the Kata patterns, don’t lose sight of what you are trying to achieve: Learning the underlying pattern.
