“Learning by Doing”: Making TWI Useful

Presented By:

Mark Warren

Session Abstract:

A structured approach that applies all of the TWI skills to grow people by solving problems. A series of worksheets were developed to guide people through the process of ‘learning to see’ disruptions to flow and select issues that make a difference in the performance of the production system.

Learning Objectives:

In this session you will learn…

  • That there can be a way to decide where to apply JI or JM
  • That the JR issues are almost always JI and/or JM issues that have been ignored so long that they become ‘people’ issues.
  • That you have a way of resolving these before they become bigger problems.
  • That there are specific roles for the manager and supervisor to coach this problem solving process.
