ASTI Consulting Services, in collaboration with the Business School of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Valladolid, will be presenting the first Lean Kata School tomorrow, whose purpose is to promote training in this field in order to contribute to the transformation of companies, using the Toyota Kata methodology.

The presentation will take place at 6:45 pm, at the International Cooking School (Valladolid). The event will include the participation of Antonio J. Fernández Álvarez (managing partner of ASTI Consulting Services); Roberto García (managing director of the Chamber of Commerce of Valladolid); and Isabel Fernández (world karate champion in the wheelchair kata method).

ASTI CS perceives that the new challenges require new training solutions: more agile, more configurable, more scalable, and more digital. The learning and training of individuals with the Lean Kata methodology allows companies to improve efficiency and profitability. To do this, it is starting up this school that is emerging to train in LEAN, incorporating the non-visible portion of the Toyota Production System (KATA), in a gamified environment, making it possible to have a large amount of data that can be processed with BigData.

The Lean Kata School will use a methodology inspired by the Toyota Kata model by Mike Rother, that helps to achieve complex goals and enable individuals to make decisions based on ongoing experience and learning.

This is through a dual educational proposal: the gamified offer that is built through a set of on-site modules and, afterward, a platform for digital gamification in Lean Kata and an online portal will be developed in order to extend the training offer in an international framework.

ASTI Consulting Services, a company created by Antonio J. Fernández Álvarez and Verónica Pascual Boé and that is part of ASTI TechGroup, was born from the goal of developing a new collaborative consulting concept for the development of operational efficiency and Industry 4.0 projects.
