Training Within Industry
TWI consists of fundamental tools that provide immediate results in reducing training time, improving processes, and building cooperation. While immediate results are crucial, the real power in TWI is the long-term benefit of creating a culture with respect, solid communication, and cooperation. These factors all play a part in contributing to the bottom line and success of an organization. TWI consists of three basic tools: job relations (JR), job instruction (JI), and job methods (JM).
Leaders are asked to do more with fewer resources and societal norms are influencing the level of motivation in today’s workforce.
