Building Capability Through In-Role Coaching on the Development, Use and Continuous Improvement of Standard Work
The defined Standardized Work for a task is the best way, safest way and most efficient way to perform that task. While seemingly simple to build, in fact the development of Standardized Work is hard. Typically involving a small group of employees experienced in a particular task, much time is spent to determine the most appropriate way to performed the task. Mistake proofing is built into the steps of performing the task. Leaders and managers are coached in-role how Standardized Work should be developed.

The Kata of Karate
The word 'karate' comes from the word 'kata'. Kata can be thought of as a practiced routine set of actions that one has internalised, which become a habit, almost an unconscious way of doing things. Toyota kata is hence an internalised routine method of learning from trials, making adjustments that are necessary, and implementing the next improvement in moving from the current condition towards a target condition. It is the real Plan Do Check Act (PDCA) actions that allow us to continuously improve.
Lean IT: What is it?
It is actually, quite a large subject. I will endeavour to describe what Lean IT is all about in several articles over the next few months. I will begin by referring to the many tools & techniques of Lean. In Lean (whether Lean IT or Lean used in other functions/industries) there are many tools and techniques. Broadly these tools & technqiues can be categorized into 5 main groups, for Problem Solving, Improving Process Flow, Direction Management, Daily Management and Building Continuous Improvement Culture
