The Mid-West Lean Network: the second largest regional lean network in Ireland, after Waterford Institute of Technology’s Lean Enterprise Excellence Group, launched in November, was set up to strengthen and increase the existing culture of lean within the Shannon and the wider Mid-West region. Its aim is to enable each industry to broaden and strengthen their competitiveness through knowledge sharing and bench-marking against each other and different industries. 

 Registration from 8.45 am 

Workshop #6 will take place in Gateway Hub and will focus on: The Coaching Kata 


Kata is at the heart of Lean – a pattern you practice to learn a new skill and mindset. Kata is grounded in the basis that routines practiced over and over again help develop proficiencies in a new habit.

The Coaching offers practical guidance for leading and developing people in a way that makes the best use of their skills. It is about utilizing the capability of everyone in the organization to repeatedly work toward and achieve new levels of performance.

The Coaching Kata follows five standard questions, which should be asked by the coach in every meeting:

  1. What is the target state of the process?
  2. What is the current state?
  3. What keeps you from reaching the target state?
  4. What obstacle do you approach next and what is the next step?
  5. When do we have a look at what you learned from the last step?


Through an interactive workshop LBSPartners will introduce Kata and its learning in order for leaders to create a culture of continuous improvement.
