Step One:

We start with an assessment and provide tailored recommendations for your workers and your workplace. KPIs are set, a communication strategy is planned and workforce orientation begins.

Step Two:

Supervisors, team leaders and those who direct the work of others attend, participate and learn in our cornerstone programs: TWI, Kata and Standardized Work.

Step Three:

We work with you to plan a pilot program and teams begin to learn by doing. Through workplace practice and coaching, we help students accept the ideas and put them to work. We’re with you through every step of the journey.

Step Four:

We assess learning, validate pilot results, incorporate skills into routines, evaluate practices and culture, and measure performance against KPIs.

Step Five:

We execute worker and workplace certifications, including TWI Certification (student and trainer), Kata Certification (student and trainer), and Train-the-Trainer Certification.

Step Six:

We stay connected with planned reassessments, KPI checks, remedial coaching, and re-certifications to protect and grow your return on investment.

Our Clients Know Us Best

The value of TWI Institute and its certified teachers and coaches is in making manuals and materials come alive in the hands, the mind and the place.

[Job Methods Training] produces immediate and dramatic results. Because the training starts with a baseline, it is easy to document and demonstrate measurable results. It clearly demonstrates the return on investment (ROI) that can be obtained from workforce training. This is a huge benefit because, historically, training has not been able to demonstrate specific bottom-line results.

We're a manufacturing company but people are the core of our operation. TWI Institute's JR (Job Relations) program brought an emphasis on trust and transparency that built a foundation for a more collaborative and cooperative culture.
