The Escuela Lean Kata

The ESCUELA LEAN KATA has set itself the objective of promoting training in LEAN KATA in order to contribute to the transformation of companies, positioning itself as the national reference among the practitioners of the TOYOTA KATA methodology.

With the training modules included in the ESCUELA LEAN KATA program, students will be able to practice the principles and tools of Lean in an effective and entertaining way.

The first experience of the ESCUELA LEAN KATA, which was born with a national vocation and international ambition, starts in Castilla y León (Spain), in collaboration with a reference partner: the Business School of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Valladolid.

ESCUELA LEAN KATA Training Offer LEAN KATA

The learning methodology of the ESCUELA LEAN KATA incorporates all the ingredients of what should be a training for knowledge of LEAN KATA : technology (i4.0) gamification, Lean more current approach, and application of improvement and coaching through KATA:

01.

All the training modules use the LKT (Lean Kata Trainer) platform for their development, which allows learning from practice with digital gamification in the classroom.

02.

The LKT platform provides teachers with a methodological approach (‘mindset’ and Lean Tools) for students to learn and practice new improvement habits (KATA) that allows them to face their challenges from a triple perspective (processes, people and leadership), through the practice of scientific thinking.

03.

The LKT platform allows to experience both, Kata Improvement (KM) and Coaching Kata (CK), which accelerates learning and the creation of new routines in the people of an organization. The TOYOTA KATA methodology requires students to learn the techniques of Coaching to learn how to coach other people in the Organization to improve processes and achieve their goals in the long term.

04.

The LKT platform allows learning through real practice. Theoretical training is only knowledge, but it is forgotten if it is not practiced. That is why the ESCUELA LEAN KATA focuses on real practice with the aim of generating new habits and routines in people, so that the application of scientific thinking is part of their daily tasks.
