This book describes the learning organizations that now use TWI more than 60 years after the TWI programs turned the United States into the industrial giant who won WWII. Based on their experience of implementing TWI in organizations such as Virginia Mason Medical Center and Donnelly Manufacturing, Shingo award winner Patrick Graupp and Robert Wrona have proven why many consider them the most successful TWI trainers in the world. Their practical guidance includes the tools and templates that can make your company's workers a competent and motivated workforce capable of realizing as of yet unprecedented results.
