Dive into A3 Thinking
An introduction to A3 method; a powerful improvement and problem-solving thinking approach that:
- Solves problems effectively
- Keeps everyone on-board so they stay solved
- Develops problem-solvers
yet is operated on a single piece of paper.
The method originated in write-ups of Toyota’s obsessive problem-solving. It is related to Toyota Kata evangelised by Håkan Forss, and is applicable to a wider range of problems.

I also received a very nice email from Mike Rother via Håkan wondering if I’d thought about the links between A3 & Kata 🙂
