Keep your improvement pace going strong.

Training Within Industry (TWI) is a proven method that enables team leaders to analyze processes and scale them down into smaller, sequenced steps. With these steps in hand, your leaders then share them effectively with everyone on the team.

As a result, your company avoids stagnation and potential obstacles from workplace communication issues, relationship complexities, and staff turnover. Your entire crew "learns by doing" and enables your company to develop and hold standardized work - the key to
long-term improvement success.
