Toyota Kata 10-hour training

The BTP Toyota KATA 10-hour program follows the known and effective format from the TWI programs. 2 hours per day, for 5 days - and all participants will practice the method. 


This program has been developed globally and in consultation with Mike Rother. In our development team, our consultant Joakim Bjurström, who is also our KATA Master Trainer, participated.

Through this Toyota KATA 10-hour course, you will learn about Improvement-KATA, Coaching-KATA, and how the TWI programs may be integrated as systematic methods to overcome obstacles, in order to get closer to the goal. Several companies add KATA Coaching after working on some of the TWI programs for some time. This will help you move on from the pilot project to daily use.

This course includes:

10-hour TWI format (Five 2-hour lessons)

  • Gives participants knowledge and the opportunity to practice in a safe environment.
  • Allows participants to absorb the material between lessons. Accelerates development of KATA skills.

The "Learn-by-doing" way (no PowerPoints)

  • A more effective way of teaching. Hearing and seeing is not enough - we have to do it.
  • Practice and mentoring applied to real problems.


Well-defined program that can be spread globally - just like our TWI programs.

  • All participants get the exact same training.
  • Standardized training and teaching will create uniformity throughout the organization.
