Growing High Performance Teams Using TWI

Presented By:

Jeff Maling

 Session Abstract:

TWI is a great set of tools to create and grow high performance teams.  As one of the presenters at the original TWI Summit 10 years ago, Jeff will share his key learning and reflections on a decade using the TWI toolbox to create value for clients.  With lots of scars to prove it, Jeff will share his experience deploying TWI as a transformation tool that gets results through people.

Attendees in this session will gain insight into:

  • Using TWI to create a “community of scientists” that learn together as high performance teams that solve problems every day
  • Leveraging TWI to create and debug process that solve problems and improve organizational performance through smarter approaches to continuous improvement.
  • Building processes that are designed to be sustained and improved….fighting the trend of backsliding that often happens with new processes.
