Designed as a digital training guide, Dozuki enables frontline workers and supervisors to train themselves on the job, saving time and resources in the process. The Dozuki software package includes equipment and materials lists, step-by-step job instructions, process photos, diagrams, video tutorials and demonstrations, and analytical tools to help workers identify areas for improvement. With an easy-to-use interface and intuitive backend, users can document work processes for training purposes and update job information as processes and technologies evolve. The highly visual format of the platform provides easy-to-follow manuals to accommodate varying learning styles or comprehension levels.
Much like Training Within Industry (TWI), organizations that leverage Dozuki experience improved communication, increased standardization and reduced training time across their entire workforce. However, there are many jobs for which there is no substitute for personalized, one-on-one instruction with an experienced trainer — and that’s where the TWI Institute comes in.
TWI programs like Job Instruction, Job Relations and Job Methods bridge the gap between autonomous, digital-only training and personalized, real-time instruction. For example, skilled instructor-led training is essential for jobs with a high level of difficulty, critical quality implications or potential for danger; TWI’s Job Instruction method covers these angles completely and comprehensively. On the other hand, TWI methodology is not always appropriate for tasks which can be easily and effectively learned independently with strong visual guides, so access to an alternative — like Dozuki — is necessary. And even when personalized instruction is carried out with TWI instruction, learners can now use the Dozuki guides as references and “memory joggers,” since they can mirror the Job Instruction Breakdowns used in TWI training.
As so-called “digital twins,” TWI Institute and Dozuki will work together to provide the most comprehensive training resources available today, each amplifying the other’s proven approach.
The partnership between TWI Institute and Dozuki comes at a crucial moment, as workers across industries are reskilling, upskilling or entering new fields altogether to meet the high demand for talent. The ability to leverage both in-person and virtual training tools — each in alignment with the other — will allow organizations to optimize their existing resources, personnel, budget and training timelines while employees get up to speed. In this way, both TWI and Dozuki provide the ideal framework for scalable continuous improvement.
