9780071843157: Global Kata: Success Through the Lean Business System Reference Model

The book that reinvents Lean for a new generation, a new global culture, and a new benchmark of success

Global Kata: Success Through the Lean Business System Reference Model™ sets a new benchmark for the evolution of Lean and strategic improvement. The book and the reference model provide a detailed road map for leading, designing, architecting, implementing, and sustaining a holistic, organization-centric and culturally grounded Lean Business System. The Lean Business System Reference Model™ provides the larger scale blueprint for a higher order, best-in-class, adaptive systematic process of improvement.

The reference model incorporates the leadership factors, design guidelines, systematic process architecture, best practices, and performance criteria for building a connected Lean Business System with a higher standard of behavioral alignment and cultural excellence (kata). The author provides both the advanced thought leadership and detailed implementation guidance for a higher order, enterprise-wide process of adaptive systematic improvement while integrating new Lean principles about leadership, evolving technology, innovation, transactional processes, and behavioral alignment and cultural development to create the right improvement kata thinking throughout any organization and in any country.

The author provides an excellent perspective on the current state of Lean with its focus on manufacturing tools and principles, and leads the reader through the rethinking, understanding, and integrating of all of the visible and invisible requirements for a successful adaptive systematic and sustainable management process of improvement. The Lean Business System Reference Model™ provides an innovative guide for organizations to advance Lean thinking and execution far beyond the production floor, and to a new level that enables the reinvention of global supply chains, new product development, cash-to-cash, acquisition integration, and other core business processes in a highly complex and technology-enabled enterprise.

A major objective of the reference model and this book is to guide organizations away from the superficial mimicking and success-limiting scope of Lean manufacturing principles and tools from other successful organizations -- and to think, innovate, expand boundaries, and become the next global Toyota organization in their own way.

From the Back Cover:

"This is the first advanced Lean book that takes a practical and realistic view of what is required to reinvent global supply chains and other professional core enterprise processes.  It’s apparent that the author has real-world experience and has been successful doing authentic, lasting work in building highly interconnected and complex transactional processes.  Where most fall short is in deployment, in Global Kata, it is obvious that the goal is to help enterprises – not only build the processes – but also to effectively deploy non-traditional and sustainable approaches to improvement."

Keith Forcinito,
VP Supply Chain Solutions,
Actuant Corporation

“Terry and his firm have always positioned themselves as improvement visionaries, implementing innovative approaches to Lean, Six Sigma, and operational improvement in a diverse spectrum of clients. Global Kata is testimony to this innovative thinking, presented in an organized, comprehensive Lean Business System Reference Model™ for other organizations to follow and achieve new breakthroughs in their enterprise-wide supply chain and other strategic improvement initiatives.”
Paul A Matthews,
Executive Vice President,
Chief Supply Chain Officer,
Topco Associates LLC

Global Kata: Success Through the Lean Business System Reference Model™ takes Lean to the next level with innovative yet pragmatic and detailed guidance for implementation. Using real examples and a how-to emphasis on leadership, behaviors, enabling technology, and culture, the book goes far beyond traditional factory-floor Lean to provide guidance in dealing with the higher order dynamic and complex transactional processes in global organizations. I highly recommend the book for those who are looking for an adaptive, systematic, practical guide to enterprise performance excellence.”
Sherry R. Gordon,

These are systems and behaviors that run deep and not only survived, but thrived through highly competitive market shifts, economic challenges, and organizational change. I am once again inspired by my Global Kata coach and mentor on our business excellence journey.”

The author provides many tactical and daily best practices for architecting, implementing, and nurturing the successful Kata-driven improvement system to effectively deploy Lean in any type of business or culture.”
