ORGANIZE A ‘KATA PRACTITIONER DAY’
The purpose of a Kata Practitoner Day (KPD) is to provide a compact, uncomplicated forum for sharing first-hand experiences and lessons learned from real practice of the Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata patterns. Many organizations are making IK/CK practice part of their day-to-day activity, to develop scientific thinking skills and drive continuous improvement toward challenging goals. A KPD is a forum for practitioners to share their knowledge with anyone who is interested in IK/CK.
You can organize a KPD for a geographic region, an industry segment or even inside a single organization where IK and CK are being practiced. A KPD is a “local” or “regional” sharing event that’s intended to be low-cost/high-value, not requiring an overnight stay.
All you need for a KPD is one specialist speaker (30 minute presentation), six or seven practitioners to present (20 minutes each), and facilitation of the Kata in the Classroom exercise.
