TWI Training and Coaching
What is Training Within Industry (TWI)?
Training Within Industry (TWI) is a dynamic and proven method of hands-on training, learning and coaching for supervisors, team leaders, and workers.
TWI was introduced in 1940 by the United States Department of War and operated within the War Manpower Commission until 1945. It was originally developed to meet the high demand for wartime materials from a smaller and less-experienced workforce.
Today, training within industry remains relevant because of its unique methodology that empowers the frontline.
TWI training is practical and fundamental; its benefits transcend time, place and situation.
- Can be learned and applied by itself or in conjunction with other problem solving and improvement programs
- Builds skills, stability, safety and confidence
- Develops frontline people as the engine for sustainable results in the workplace
- Creates an essential foundation for problem solving, standard work, continuous improvement, operational excellence and Lean initiatives
- Encourages positive employee relations, resolves conflicts, increases cooperation and motivation
Why the TWI training method is effective
Your people become involved and feel appreciated; their performance and emotional commitment takes productivity to new heights. Through TWI training, supervisors learn to instruct, improve methods and lead people effectively.
Learn by Doing
The TWI training method emphasizes step-by-step instruction, practice and coaching. Learners aren’t just observers, they’re doers.
The expertise your team learns sticks with them, leading to process consistency, stability and better, more efficient teamwork.
