WHY CHOOSE KATA?
Our Invisible Secret Sauce…
We use an invisible tool to make great things.
We founded KATA Engineering based on our beliefs that goals are accomplished through an invisible choreographed process of problem solving.
This invisible purpose makes us different. Period.
Our purpose is to survive by continuous improvement and ask for challenges, not to just make production and work around problems.
We don’t hit goals by accident. We don’t act before we have a target condition. We first understand the current state deeply, then we create a series of small target condition steps to ultimately achieve goals.
All of this is done through coaching and harnessing the invisible problem solving power of people.
