Join the practitioner community

Practitioners who gain a Certificate of Kata Competency are eligible to become a member of the LCS community free of charge.

The LCS Community is a place for continuous improvement practitioners to come together and communicate ideas, debate issues, find information and solve problems. It facilitates ‘peer-to-peer’ learning by promoting collaboration, networking, discussion and information sharing, leveraging the collective knowledge and experience of the community.

  • Develop your learning and practice in continuous improvement with exclusive access to resources and information.
  • Solve problems and collaborate with like-minded practitioners through our online forum.
  • Promote your kata credentials to the community through your online digital credentials profile.
  • Access our brand new Continuing Professional Development platform (as a Premium Practitioner Member), providing a framework for ongoing personal development.
