Job Instruction Training (Train the On-Job Trainer)

Click here for the flyer

Standardized work is widely recognized as a cornerstone to measuring improvement. Each successful completion of a standardized task validates the hypothesis that the work is properly designed, that the worker is adequately trained, and that operating conditions are as the internal and external customer needs them to be. Standardized work provides a foundation upon which deviations from these desired conditions can be most quickly recognized and corrected. It also provides a baseline for continuous improvement (Kaizen) and a foundation for training requirements. This training session will provide an overview of the 4-step Job Instruction Training process with specific focus on the behaviors and characteristics of the various learning styles that are specific to each person.

Job Instruction Training allows the primary process owner to see the major steps, key points and reasons for a specific job as well as identifying learning styles and behavior traits necessary to tailor the training to the individual. Work standards then provide the foundation for employee engagement, continuous improvement and problem solving.

Learning Styles
A good leader/trainer/coach should recognize the different learning styles that exist in the workplace within the different roles and functional areas. Having an awareness of learning styles gives individuals key information on questions to ask, how to ask them and allow for effective 2-way communication, building mutual trust and respect. Understanding how individuals process information and learn also assists in creating the best practice for the standardized work development process. Participants will be part of determining their own learning style/preference looking at characteristics of introversion/extroversion as well as several other preferences.

Practice Simulations
Participants will be able to practice the 4 steps of Job Instruction Training, write job breakdown sheets (major steps, key points and reasons) and work in teams using a practice simulation rotating the role of the observer, trainer, trainee and evaluator. At the end of the session each person will be given an evaluation sheet and the ability to assess how they scored using the Job Instruction Training process.

• Participants learn how all elements of Job Instruction Training help an organization create skilled and engaged work teams capable of solving problems within their area of responsibility.
• Participants understand the principles of job instruction and why on-the-job coaching and development is more effective when learning styles are considered.
• Participants are introduced to the Job Instruction Training steps and how they need to be implemented in the work environment with the added awareness of learning style and behavior-based learning.

You will learn:
• The five basic needs of a Leader/Trainer.
• How to break down work and instruct using the Job Instruction Training 4-step method.
• The practical relationship between standard work, problem solving and continuous improvement.
• The learning styles and preferences to learn/train.
• To develop an awareness of body language and environmental preferences for learning.
• Practice real Job Instruction Training steps using a simulation.
• How to effectively evaluate a trainer to trainee process.
