Deep Dive into making JI Breakdowns (JIBs)

Presented By:

Patrick Graupp

Session Abstract:

The Job Instruction 10-hour training course does an excellent job of practicing and developing skill in instructing using a 4-step method. But central to this method is the preparation of breaking down the job to be trained, known as the Job Instruction Breakdown (JIB), into the elements of Important/Major Steps, Key Points and the Reasons for those Key Points. Long experience with this process proves that it takes time to build expertise in making effective breakdowns. This Experiential Session will provide hands-on instruction and practice of what it takes to make a good JIB and will delve into decades of experience in a variety of industries from manufacturing to healthcare to service. The practice will answer these kinds of questions JI practitioners run into when making JIBs:

  •  What is a good volume to teach in one JIB
  • How many Important Steps should a JIB have
  • How many Key Points per Important Step is ideal
  • What is a balanced JIB and how to make it
  • Keeping the words “few and simple” (hint: this is not simple)
  • How to teach “feel and knack”
  • Getting the “real reasons” for Key Points
  • Grammar for breakdowns
  • What are Common Key Points and how to use them

Learning Objectives:

In this session you will learn…

  • How to make a good Job Instruction breakdown
  • Why the JIB preparation is critical for the success of Job Instruction
  • How the JIB works to create effective Job Instruction

About the Facilitator: 

Patrick Graupp, began his training career at the SANYO Electric Corporate Training Center in Japan after graduating with Highest Honors from Drexel University in 1980. There he learned to deliver TWI from his mentor Kazuhiko Shibuya. Mr. Shibuya was trained by Kenji Ogawa who was trained by the four TWI Inc. trainers sent from the US to help Japan rebuild industry in 1951. Patrick earned an MBA from Boston University while heading Sanyo’s global training effort. He was later promoted to the head of Human Resources for SANYO North America Corp. in San Diego, CA where he settled.

Patrick partnered with Bob Wrona in 2001 to conduct TWI pilot projects in Syracuse, NY that became the foundation for the TWI Institute which has since trained a rapidly expanding global network of over 1100 certified trainers who are now delivering TWI training in the manufacturing, health care, construction, energy, and service industries in the US and around the globe. These efforts were outlined in their book The TWI Workbook: Essential Skills for Supervisors, a Shingo Research and Professional Publication Prize Recipient for 2007. Patrick is also the author of Implementing TWI: Creating and Managing a Skills-Based Culture which was published by Productivity Press in 2010 and Getting to Standard Work in Health Care: Using TWI to Create a Foundation for Quality Care published by CRC Press in 2012.
