Good habits need to start somewhere - via actions that reveal a benefit. When continuously improving becomes habitual through introduction, routine and practice, business results are impacted. Based on the highly effective and proven structure of Training Within Industry (TWI), gain new insights for how to think and act in a lean environment for supervisors, team leaders, and anyone who directs the work of others.
In this hand-on learning and practice session, attendees will be introduced to a ‘company’ that is challenged by the ‘customer’ to improve a process. Each attendee will be allocated a role within the process. The process will begin using this new team, each with their roles, and will run for a period of time with observations made, routines applied and then re-run. Learn to apply the improvement kata, coaching kata, job instruction (JI) and job relations (JR) methods. This iterative process will build awareness, capability and a deeper understanding of how these two programs work in tandem. Then practice routines centered on:
The four steps of the improvement kata.
The coaching kata that will navigate you through the above.
Reducing variation in standard work through application of JI.
Improving process results through people via application of JR.
