Choose the level that fits your organization’s size and needs
Depending on the size of your organization and, more specifically, the ideal ratio of Kata trainers to employees, your needs will vary. TWI Institute will guide your team every step of the way in designing and executing a Kata training, certification and practice plan that works for you.
This online certificate program engages your people in learning the fundamentals of Kata and how they help take your organization to its desired future state. Starting with fundamentals of the Improvement Kata, participants learn about the elements of the Coaching Kata and gain a deep understanding of why Kata is so effective at developing a culture of employee engagement and continuous improvement.
Following the classic TWI training approach, your employees will be trained by TWI Institute instructors as they complete the “learn-by-doing” course, either live or virtually, in the Essential Kata training for frontline practitioners. Your management team can also be certified in a one-day Kata Foundations and Simulation course that provides an overview of Kata practice. Finally, you can certify your people in the Driving and Coaching Improvement course, which is a combination of the other two courses.
Becoming a TWI Institute Certified Trainer
Each Kata training module follows a standard delivery approach that can be learned in the well-established TWI Train-the-Trainer format. This pattern was designed by TWI founders in order to engage the “multiplier effect” – that is, to train people who will train other people who will train groups of people to use the method. TWI Institute will certify your qualified people to teach the Kata classes, following a standard delivery model for each course and ensuring that your organization continues to reap the benefits of the programs.
