Training Within Industry (TWI) and ‘Lean’

Providing capability in three core lean concepts.

Respect for people, standard work and continuous improvement have long been understood to be integral, overlapping and essential ‘ingredients’ in any organisation that sustains lean.

Training Within Industry (TWI) and Toyota Kata

Practicing the Improvement Kata pulls the need for the three “J” skills of TWI.

A “pull system” describes a situation where what’s happening is only happening when the downstream “operation” needs it to be happening. Experimentation in step 4 of the Improvement Kata pulls in tools and skills. From time to time these skills will be Job Relations (JR), Job Instruction (JI) and Job Methods (JM). Further,
as a whole, JR skills are synergistic with the Toyota Kata habits.

We all know the importance of coaching when it comes to performance in sport. Even though I have been leading people for 20 years I had not realised the power of utilising coaching kata to maximise peoples capabilities and attain goals. I wish I found it all those year ago.

We are working with Oscar to develop a training pathway for new starters, building their knowledge and skills to enable them progress onward, maximising our human capital. The system covers the knowledge and skills needed, who will pass them on, and how.

Throughout this project Oscar has involved the experienced staff in the building of the knowledge and skill material, increasing the likelihood of a sustainable system, owned by our people.

Oscar has helped us develop a system of learning, in our own often fast paced environment that has the required consistency to ensure the quality required with the flexibility to accommodate the needs of the individual. He has made the step by step requirements clear, and reliably follows up on the tasks he is driving, carefully insisting and helping us reach each step of the project.

My thought on the training:
We had a wonderful 2 weeks of training on TWI covering JI and JR. JI is a very effective training methodology that we can apply in many areas. We were completely convinced that it can helps in shorten our training lead time, improve the efficiency and quality in our worker’s performance. How good if we can get to know this earlier!!

JR on another note is very much a soft skill training. On the first perception, it seems like a general knowledge; something that we were being taught in any leadership training. However similarly to JI; there’s a pattern of learning that we need to develop that is matter. Most of the time we know what should be done but we just failed to do so. JR will definitely address that as we will handle the issue steps by steps till that become a habits.

Trainer:
Oscar is a seasoned trainer, very knowledgeable in the subject. He carried out the training in his most professional self and accept no nonsense from the group. He has a sharp observation skill and always able to bring out the best from each student.

I want to reiterate my comments regarding the value of the (Toyota Kata Train the Trainer) week we just spent together. I know it was the purpose of the session to prepare us to successfully deliver the 10 hour course but I appreciate the level of commitment you have and show to your pupils. You created a great learning environment.
