The Lean Skills Summit

Learn to Lead at The European TWI and Toyota Kata Summit

The TWI and Toyota Kata Summit in Europe is an annual gathering of those seeking to learn, implement, and sustain successful TWI Programs (Training Within Industry) and Kata scientific thinking in order to address some of the most common challenges in your organization.

Join us and learn to develop new habits which can allow you, and those you work with, to think differently about your goals and problems.

Powerful Keynotes and Workshops

Each Summit day will be started by an inspiring keynote to set the standard for the day and then it will finish off with a workshop to cement the learnings of the day.

Your keynote speakers (and workshop facilitators) are incredibly sought for in the Lean environment.
