Scientific thinking is a life skill that is becoming essential for creativity and successfully pursuing seemingly unattainable goals, particularly for organisations who want to create learning, systematic improvement and innovation.

Now it's time for the first KataCon in Europe, where you can connect and learn — together — with the rapidly growing world of Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata practitioners in Europe.

The Improvement Kata and Coaching Kata turn scientific thinking into a practical skill anyone can practice and learn.
