I (Oscar) have been asked several times recently ‘where does TWI fit into Standardization?’ Or ‘where does Kata fit …?’.
If you look at the ‘why’ of each of the TWI and Kata patterns I find that easy to see and moreso easy to recognize the pull (from standardization) when it comes.
In this brief webinar I’ll give a quick overview of the 5 Step Up model for standardization and then the 4 ‘whys’ - 1 from each of the 3 TWI skills, and then Kata. We’ll then overlay what’s laid in front of you. I believe you’ll then see what I see and will be ready to recognize the pull too.
2 things that drive Oscar’s endeavors in building capability. 1) people must have trust in his intent; 2) nothing is more effective and liberating than saying “I’m not sure” then learning by doing.
As a Director of the Australian, New Zealand and South East Asian TWI Institute Global Partnership Oscar is mindful of these 2 things daily. He frequently quotes a manager he’s met who said “the more I know the more I realize I don’t know”. He feels that as long as he maintains that mindset he can be of service to others.
Finally, he loves Mark Rosenthal’s quote of “Teach to extend their Knowledge Threshold, not demonstrate yours.”
