What Our Clients Say
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.
