Agile Kata is a pattern for increasing business agility, managing agile transformations and a practice for agile teams. The current statistics for agile transformations are not very promising. 75% of all agile transformations fail to achieve their goals and therefore miss the enormous positive impact it has on employee engagement, customer satisfaction, operational performance and time-to-market (McKinsey 2022). Is it because companies see Agile as an update of business processes and not as a culture change?

Is Business Agility a big buzzword in your organization, which is difficult to break down into digestible chunks? Or are your existing agile teams looking for new ways to implement organizational change or looking for new ways of working? The list of challenges can be long.

Agile Kata is versatile and can provide answers to these common questions and challenges. It combines a proven practice, which has been used for decades in lean manufacturing, with a clear adaptation to agile values and principles. See how scientific thinking and practical application work well together in this course. You deepen your understanding that Agile Kata is not an off-the-shelf process product, but a pattern that helps you create your own process, specific to your organizational needs and goals.
