Standardized Work with TWI: Eliminating Human Errors in Production and Service Processes presents the Training within Industry (TWI) program and describes how it can influence and alter one’s understanding of work standardization. Work standardization is the key to eliminating human errors from manufacturing and service processes. Work standardization is not just the creation of job instructions—it is a comprehensive approach in which employees are formally trained and their skills in the area of work improvement are developed by kaizen sessions. With poor instructions, though, the effectiveness of these two key activities in the work standardization process is practically impossible to achieve. The book introduces you to 41 rules for standard work instruction (SWI) preparation. Following these rules will ensure that the instructions in your company are ideally suited to train operators and improve work. The author developed these rules based on his professional experience and practice within the TWI program in more than 120 manufacturing and service enterprises, while creating thousands of SWIs. These rules are a clear set of signposts that will help you develop a correct SWI on the first attempt without any unnecessary correction of errors. The quality of SWIs significantly affects how on-the-job training sessions are run, as well as how work analysis with respect to improvement is conducted.

Addressing the challenges involved in achieving standard work in health care, Getting to Standard Work in Health Care: Using TWI to Create a Foundation for Quality Care describes how to incorporate the most widely used Training Within Industry (TWI) method, the Job Instruction (JI) training module, to facilitate performance excellence and boost employee morale in a health care organization. It not only examines the JI methodology but also explains how this program is as vital and applicable in today’s health care environment as it was when it was developed to train replacements of an industrial workforce off to fight in WWII. Placing this methodology squarely within the health care paradigm, the book uses easy-to-understand terminology to describe how this method can make all the difference in the delivery of quality health care. Supplying the foundation for successful Lean practice in health care, it clearly defines the role of standard work and training in relation to Lean health care. The text includes case studies of current TWI usage in health care that demonstrate how to successfully roll out a sustainable Job Instruction initiative. Containing numerous examples of Job Instruction breakdowns in health care, the book provides you with the understanding of how to use this time-tested methodology to improve training, increase efficiency, and decrease strain in your organization.

Origen y destino de las caravanas que cruzan el Sáhara occidental desde la Edad Media, Tombuctú era un mito en los confines del desierto. La imaginación y el comercio habían depositado allí fabulosas riquezas, pero sus muros ocultaban un tesoro muy distinto: 370.000 manuscritos que recogían los saberes cultivados por la erudición árabe durante cinco siglos. Había tratados científicos, matemáticos, filosóficos o místicos, textos clásicos, poemas, devocionarios y manuales para la mejora del rendimiento carnal. Aquel templo de la inteligencia fue profanado por la horda de fanáticos que conquistó el norte de Mali a principios de 2012. Su ley se perpetró sin dilaciones: ladrones mutilados, santuarios destruidos, adúlteros lapidados y obras impías condenadas a la hoguera. El fuego divino contra la razón humana. Los héroes de este relato se las ingeniaron para salvarla. Abdelkader Haidara había dedicado treinta años a reunir el fondo bibliográfico amenazado por las llamas. Cuando ardieron los primeros volúmenes decidió organizar una operación de contrabando para impedir que los milicianos de la fe consumaran su fechoría. Durante varios meses, los baúles salieron de la ciudad con su inestimable carga de papel. Por ásperos caminos llegaban a orillas del Níger eludiendo los azares de la guerra y desde allí continuaban río arriba hasta Bamako, la capital del país. Un viaje lleno de incertidumbres y episodios novelescos. Esa es la aventura que narra este libro, una historia que, por una vez, acaba felizmente. Los contrabandistas de Tombuctú consiguieron burlar a los inquisidores.

Basado en las entrevistas e intervenciones públicas que Steve Jobs realizó a lo largo de su vida, este libro recoge los pensamientos más sagaces y brillantes de este visionario que revolucionó nuestra manera de ver el mundo. Más de doscientas citas que son de lectura esencial para todos aquellos que desean encontrar soluciones innovadoras y llenas de inspiración aplicables a todos los ámbitos de la vida. Calificado como “el director y empresario más importante nuestra época” o incluso como “la persona más importante de la década”, desde 1976, año en el que fundó Apple, hasta su dimisión en agosto de 2011, Steve Jobs desarrolló una de las carreras más impresionantes de la historia y ha dejado una huella indeleble en múltiples industrias . Fue el impulsor de los ordenadores personales, de aplicaciones para múltiples dispositivos y sus creaciones más recientes, el iPhone, el iPod, o el iPad, pasarán a la memoria colectiva por su poder para transformar radicalmente nuestra forma de trabajar y disfrutar del ocio. Pero su aportación va más allá, Steve Jobs fue un verdadero genio, sus pensamientos e ideas despiertan la admiración de millones de personas y su influencia se dejará notar en años venideros. Este libro será fuente de inspiración para todos aquellos que persiguen un sueño. Citas del libro: Ser o no ser Tienes un tiempo limitado y no hay que perderlo viviendo la vida de otro. No quedes atrapado en el dogma de vivir con arreglo a los parámetros de lo que otros piensan. Que el ruido de las opiniones de los demás no acalle tu propia voz interior. Y lo más importante: ten el valor de obedecer a tu corazón y a tu intuición que, en cierto modo, saben lo que quieres de verdad. Todo lo demás es secundario. [Discurso inaugural de curso, Universidad de Stanford, 12 de junio de 2005] La esencia de Apple: los empleados Nuestra esencia está en nuestras ideas, en nuestra gente. Es nuestra motivación para ir cada mañana a trabajar y relacionarnos con personas tan brillantes. Yo siempre he pensado que la elección de personal es el corazón y el alma de lo que hacemos.

Este libro parte del presupuesto de que la antropología lingüística es una disciplina con entidad propia, que merece estudiarse tanto por sus logros pasados como por las perspectivas de futuro que se vislumbran en el trabajo de un grupo activo de investigadores interdisciplinares. Sus contribuciones sobre la naturaleza del lenguaje como instrumento social, y del habla como práctica cultural, han establecido un campo de investigación que imprime un nuevo sesgo a las tradiciones del pasado y a las actuales dentro de las humanidades y las ciencias sociales, y nos invita a todos a pensar de nuevo la relación entre lenguaje y cultura.
