Featured Topic: Improvement Kata

Mike Rother, co-author the groundbreaking book Learning to See, brought a new way of understanding lean to us yet again.  In 2010, he wrote a book called Toyota Kata: Managing People for Improvement, Adaptiveness and Superior Results.  This book describes the means by which true lean thinking can be spread throughout an organization using the Improvement Kata.
