Instead, the Starter Kata is deceptively simple in its implementation. At its root, the framework is intended to amplify organizational learning using continuous improvement experiments to move from the current condition to the target condition. After years of working with more complicated frameworks, we prefer its simplicity and focus on doing the work, rather than learning the framework. Part of its appeal is that, when you have cross-functional teams made up of people with diverse backgrounds, skill sets, experience levels and working styles, you need a framework that is easy for all these types of people to follow and use. In our hard-won experience, other popular frameworks with a steep learning curve tended to leave some people behind, destroying the possibility for real shared context.
