Job Instruction (JI) For Learners
Job Instruction (JI) is a fundamental element of Lean and the first TWI course. Its purpose is to get people fully trained and adding value to the organization in the shortest period of time possible while preventing problems that could arise from faulty instruction. JI establishes a single best method for doing a job and allows a trainer to transfer knowledge to a learner quickly while also verifying comprehension using a simple four-step method. The "Learner" version of this JI course can be used to facilitate your own 5-day, in person, JI course. A detailed facilitator's guide is also available which includes a day by day agenda. In preparation for a live course we highly recommend facilitator's, no matter their experience level, first watch the far more detailed "facilitators" version of this same JI course where you are able to see an actual 5-day course unfold before your eyes.
Day 5: Rolling Out JI
In this final JI course teaching lesson Steve offers some ideas on how to roll JI out in your organization. He also shares some additional learning opportunities and gives a special shout out to Gemba Academy's dear friend, Jim Huntzinger, who was extremely helpful and supportive as we put this course together.
