Topic:  Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata

Imagine you have a way of managing that generates initiative among everyone in the organization to adapt, improve, and keep the organization moving forward.  Imagine that although this method is different from how we currently manage, it is ultimately not difficult to understand.” (Mike Rother, Toyota Kata, 2010)       http://www-personal.umich.edu/~mrother/The_Improvement_Kata.html


The previous quote encapsulates well the mantra of the Improvement and Coaching Kata described by Mike Rother in his book Toyota Kata.  On Tuesday, we will be engaging in a fast paced exercise to better understand the iterative process of improvement, and the supporting management techniques.  While the PMI strives for absolutes and definitive project plans, there are often times when the solution is not known.  Tuesday will give attendees a chance to practice a scientific method of problem solving, moving projects forward when the path is not as clear.


Presenter:  Aaron Matthews - Continuous Improvement Deployment Leader, MOD

Aaron is currently the AOS Deployment Leader (Continuous Improvement Leader) at The Andersons, Inc. located in Maumee Ohio.  He has lead Continuous Improvement efforts in areas that include production, distribution, administration, retail, agriculture, rail, and ethanol.  Aaron has Lean Six Sigma Belt certification from PACCAR Parts in Bellevue Washington, and has also completed a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification from the University of Michigan.  He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Bowling Green State University, and a Master’s Degree in Organization Development from BGSU.
