Leverage your Lean Manufacturing Strategy for Workforce Development

April 16 – 20  |  Classroom training 8:00am – 10:00am daily  |  Limited to 10 participants

Training Within Industry (TWI) is a dynamic training methodology that creates an environment in which jobs are performed the same way, by all team members and where problem solving is done at the operator level. TWI recognizes supervisors have five basic needs to be effective including Knowledge of the Work and Knowledge of Responsibilities. The needs for Knowledge are unique to each company and/or industry and are therefore provided locally. Supervisors also need Skills in order to perform within their role, regardless of their industry. TWI helps them develop these skills.

The Job Instruction (JI) module prepares supervisors to quickly train employees to do a job correctly, safely, and conscientiously. The objective of this module is to help supervisors develop a well-trained workforce.

Hands-on Training

Training is delivered in 2-hour sessions over five consecutive days, for up to 10 participants (trainers, team leads, and coaches). The training method emphasizes preparing the operator to learn, giving a proper demonstration while identifying the important steps and the key points of the job, having the operator perform a trial run, and tapering off coaching with intermittent follow-up. It is recommended an organization send 2 or more individuals.

Personalized Support

Once the training is completed IMEC will visit each company and provide two hours of one-on-one coaching with the participants. This will enhance the training by allowing the learners to apply the material to their actual workplace situations.

Cancellations made within 7 days of event may be subject to a 50% cancellation fee.

Cost: $1399 – Funding support for incumbent worker training may be available through the McHenry County Workforce Center or the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association, depending on company location and/or IMA membership.

Sponsor: IMEC, McHenry County Workforce Center, Illinois Manufacturers’ Association
