My Role: TWI

What is TWI?

Training Within Industry (TWI) is a series of training courses that give emerging leaders and supervisors skills in performing their work and leading their teams. Training programs and the skills they teach include…

  • Job Instruction: Skill of instructing others on complex jobs leading to formalized training methods and standard work.
  • Job Methods: Skill of breaking down and improving processes creating a culture of continuous improvement.
  • Job Relations: Skill of managing people and relationships fostering a culture of “respect for people.”

The architects of the Toyota Production System adopted TWI which led to behaviors and patterns of thinking that led to what we know as Lean.

Learning Loop

The Lean Frontiers Learning Loop takes you from basic awareness and knowledge through skill development and mastery with the annual TWI Summit in North America and TWI & Kata Summit Europe as key stopping points.
