September 6-7 - Nordson Asymtek - Carlsbad

Join us for this exciting hands-on learning event hosted by the AME San Diego Consortium. This workshop provides attendees the "less visible" part of lean which has been a vital ingredient to Toyota's ability to sustain its continuous improvement focus for decades.

Workshop attendees will learn the daily management process and practice routines for coaching and improvement that they can take back to their organizations. Jerry M. Wright, PE learned the Toyota Kata directly from Toyota Kata pioneer and author, Mike Rother. Jerry will use simulations and hands-on activities at Nordson Asymtek to demonstrate the Toyota Kata techniques and allow participants to use Kata in their own organizations immediately following the workshop.
