Continuous Improvement Training and Programming
Get more out of your Continuous Improvement journey
Continuous Improvement is more than a process or a single concept. At TWI Institute, we view Continuous Improvement as an ongoing, incremental culture of change. Training for Continuous Improvement encourages smarter work, safer workplaces and more satisfied supervisors and workers.
Our programs – TWI, Kata and Standardized Work – generate results and value in the workplace by advancing the skills, contributions and self-respect among supervisors and workers. The work we do with you and your teams provides the ideal foundation or complement to current or planned continuous improvement, Lean, kaizen, operational excellence or talent development initiatives.
If you want to change your business, we can help. TWI Institute specializes in providing training and coaching programs that make people and the work they do better. This makes your department, your facility, your frontline people – and most importantly, your business – perform better.

What Our Clients Say
Our experience offers you insights to improvement
Our end-to-end approach sets us apart
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.
Supervisors, team leaders and those who direct the work of others attend, participate and learn in our cornerstone programs: TWI, Kata and Standardized Work.
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.
We assess learning, validate pilot results, incorporate skills into routines, evaluate practices and culture, and measure performance against KPIs.
We execute worker and workplace certifications, including TWI Certification (student and trainer), Kata Certification (student and trainer) Train-the-Trainer Certification, and TWI:2018 Certification.
We stay connected with planned reassessments, KPI checks, remedial coaching, and re-certifications to protect and grow your return on investment.
