Job instruction training (JI) is a lean principle born out of the need for training and upskilling new industry workers, including women, during the Second World War. This framework was adopted by many firms to meet the demands of both United States citizens and the US Military.
The job instruction method is still used today to bring workers up to speed in a new position or to train on a new skill. This framework will help you and your team develop a system and procedure for on-the-job training. While the purpose of this training is mainly for frontline workers, the same ideas transpire to any position in the company.
In a recent chat for USA Manufacturing Hour on Twitter, host Chase Bodor from Plastic Plus Technologies in California led a discussion about this very topic.
