TWI Webcast this Week


IndustryWeek : Foundations of the Toyota Production System: Establish Standardized Work & Sustain Your Lean Initiative with TWI Training

I'm hoping to attend this online, or at least I'll watch the archive.

This Webcast will also feature Patrick Graupp, who was TWI trained in Japan in the 1980s while working for Sanyo. He will share stories and results of companies who have discovered TWI as the missing ingredient to attain and sustain standard work as the foundation for continuous improvement. Grupp was North America's first TWI Master Trainer since the end of WWII.

I'm learning a lot about TWI through my own work. It applies well in a number of settings, including hospitals. There are some very interesting early writings about TWI applied to healthcare that date back to the 1940's.
