KataCon Europe

The Lean Forum Sweden invites you to KataCon in Sweden, 2024.

KataCon Europe 2024 is happening on December 3rd and 4th in Halmstad, Sweden

A dynamic business landscape means your team need to be dynamic too. Many organizations in Europe are adding scientific-thinking practice to become more efficient, adaptable, and competitive. Come to Halmstad to get an update and learn from peers about how you can take your team to a new level of results in unpredictable times.

• We’ll begin with two study visits:

To start off our exchange we’ll visit two different learning organizations and study how they are establishing continuous improvement as part of everybody’s daily work and developing a more effective way of working toward their goals.

• Then we’ll shift to keynotes from three renowned experts, with follow-on discussion:

Christina Bengtsson (Stockholm School of Economics), Joe Justice (formerly Tesla), and Malik Šišić (Volkswagen) will share their experience on speeding innovation, creating focus on both a personal and organizational level, and practicing and coaching for scientific thinking in a large organization. Your questions will be welcome in the discussion!

• But… talk & discussion are not enough, so then we move into some hands-on practice:

In three hands-on workshops you’ll learn how to practice scientific thinking and coaching skills and bring life to what we discussed. These are things you can take home and start doing on Monday.

Join us for this useful annual gathering filled with insights, learning, and practicing: How to thrive at work, how to become the coach you always wanted to be, how psychological behaviors and your organization’s culture are connected. Whether you’re curious, a beginner, a learner, or a coach, come join your peers in Halmstad.
