Join the bi-annual gathering for Toyota Kata people, change makers & innovators.

There is a shift going on in the world of work. Organisations are becoming more human and joyful.

Our purpose is to accelerate this transformation by adding essential missing pieces in the main movements of worklife development:

And for our colleagues in the core community of Kata geeks? Our aim is not ‘more of the same’. You will meet people that bring new perspectives that help you level up Kata in your organisation, and a wider community of people who share the aspiration to take on new challenges.

You’re invited to connect, learn and share. We hope to meet you this spring in Berlin!
