Training During Disruption with TWI: The Need is Now!

Friday, April 17 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am • Organized By Missouri Enterprise, Kansas City
Online Event


Training Within Industry (TWI) is a dynamic program of hands-on learning and practice, teaching essential skills and standard work. TWI originated in the United States in the 1940s to boost industrial production of war material. By rapidly training unskilled workers, the production capabilities of US manufacturers exceeded expectations.

With the Defense Production Act declaration on March 20, 2020, TWI is a tool that can help manufacturers to alter production to support emergency preparedness and response activities, while creating a culture of continuous improvement and repeatable success. Crisis has created a need – how will your company respond to the call? Learn how TWI can help you to prepare new staff to take on a production role due to a shifting workforce, or as you use your existing team to begin production of new materials.

The Training During Disruption with TWI: The Need is Now! webinar covers how Training within Industry (TWI) is a tool to capture standard work and quickly train staff for new responsibilities.
