Creating an Adaptable Workforce: Using the Coaching Kata for Enhanced Environmental Performance

Jesus Reveral, Environmental Quality Management, Winter 2012

The Improvement Kata is not about immediate results. Instead, it’s about guiding the learner through the improvement corridor.

“Kata” is a pattern or routine, but the Coaching Kata is the only one that changes and conforms to the particular Kata that is being taught and can help an organization realize the possibilities inherent in other Katas. Coaching Kata includes:

  • Setting Your Vision
  • Hoshin Kanri: Policy Deployment
  • Improvement Kata
  • The Improvement Corridor and The Knowledge Threshold
  • Target Condition, Current Condition and Obstacles
  • Daily Kata
