LEGO has been a household name all of my life and I was aware that they had a strong people-focused culture and adopted Lean methods. This book, written with LEGO insiders, is a stunning example of the discipline and commitment needed to develop people as masters of their crafts through the only way people learn-repetitive, deliberate practice. -Jeffrey K. Liker, Professor, University of Michigan; and Shingo Prize-winning author of The Toyota Way Few books, if any in the Lean area since the NUMMI era, have gone into such depth on what it takes to integrate and unify across cultures. The book will become a standard guide not only to TWI implementation, but to the wider challenge of cross-functional and cross-cultural integration. -John Bicheno, Founder of MSc in Lean Enterprise at The University of Buckingham While TWI has made a significant comeback in recent years as the underpinning of the Toyota Production System's foundation for continuous improvement and standard work, the ability to make it an integrated and sustainable system of developing people with a highly productive capability to solve problems while continually learning has remained elusive to most organizations. The book describes in detail how LEGO achieve this culture through a strategic and deliberate plan to develop and deploy a global system of organizational training using TWI as its foundation. -Jim Huntzinger, President/Founder, Lean Frontiers


Building a Global Learning Organization: Using TWI to Succeed with Strategic Workforce Expansion in the LEGO® Group describes how a multinational company developed a global structure for learning based on the TWI (Training Within Industry) program to create and sustain standardized work across multiple language and cultural platforms. In this book, Shingo Prize-winning author Patrick Graupp collaborates with two practitioners who performed the planning and implementation of the LEGO Group’s worldwide Learning Organization.

The book outlines the organizational and planning models used by the LEGO Group to create the internal ability to give and receive tacit skills and knowledge. Describing how and why TWI is used as the foundation for success in knowledge transfer across diverse languages and cultures, it provides step-by-step guidance on how to establish a solid organizational foundation for your own Learning Organization.

Providing expert insight into the work of culture change, the book explains how to work with people to create motivation for moving to a new system of learning. It details the critical elements that made the implementation at the LEGO Group a success, identifies the stumbling blocks they encountered along the way, and explains how they were overcome. Case studies describe in detail what these efforts looked and felt like in actual application.

The TWI program has long been recognized for its ability to generate results. After reading this book, you will gain valuable insight into how your organization—whether large or small, national or international—can integrate this timeless tool into your operating structure and your daily culture.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lego: from plastic toys stuck in your vacuum cleaner to thoughtful management primer. Very enjoyable and useful. 5. September 2014
Von Quickbeam - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
For me, this book reads like a good novel. I am an RN in a corporate setting. I've been a manager and have taken a lot of business classes in addition to my nursing degrees. All I knew about Lego before picking up this book was that they were small plastic toys that snapped together. I also knew they began in Denmark. That's it.

My take away has not only been an education on Lego but also a clever and thoughtful way at looking at logistics and personnel challenges. How things move, what you need to secure your quality control. How to problem solve and maintain your corporate identity; Lego has done that. I used this book to brainstorm a troubling personnel issue we have and we've determined that we need to "grow our own" talent. The exercises in this book allowed us to take the problem and look at it from a different point of view.

If you are in business, production or industry this is a worthy read. Great business examples that anyone can relate to.
5.0 von 5 Sternen How to train the world 6. Oktober 2014

Once an organization is successful, its eyes are next on growing big. With LEGO, scalability was not a problem, the market wanted them to grow, but as the number of resources increase, and centers mushroom, maintaining a standard way of doing things for efficiency and safety is a big concern.
The authors have come up with that way of TWI or Training within industry and a framework of Functional Area Master Trainer, Global Trainer and Local Trainers. If you interest is in how to set up this framework of consistent training across a global company, then this chapter is for you. How to train and measure if the training has been effective against your starting goals.
I liked learning the concepts of JI Job Instruction, Job Breakdown sheet, Work Element sheet, Standard work chart. with complex jobs, I can see how videos of an operation, and picture by picture show of the operations can eliminate errors.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating Read 12. September 2014
Von Dat Hong - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
This is a great insightful business book that goes inside The Lego Group and details how they made changes, motivated employees and moved towards a new system of learning. The book is easy to read and everything is outlined like a college textbook. I felt like I was back in a business class in college while going through this.

I will admit, I am a huge LEGO fan so the title got me. There are no pictures in the book and this is strictly a business book, and reads like a journal. It is quite a fascinating read.

I learned quite a lot about The Lego Group from reading this, and realize they are more than just a company who makes yellow bricks for kids. If I had an organization that needed help and change, I would definitely look to this resource guide.
5.0 von 5 Sternen The method behind the madness 23. Oktober 2014

I have a confession to make. I'm a huge Lego fan! I grew up with them. My son gets a few sets each year for Christmas and Birthday. We have Lego videos, Lego video games, and even Lego themed clothes. So I had to know how has a company like Lego become so successful at spreading it's brand. Reading this book has helped me understand the hurdles the Lego company has overcome in building a Global Learning Organization and how those principles can help other companies that are situated with similar goals and issues. This covers internal issues within the company and provides some great exercises on getting the perspective of others and standardizing things to the lowest common denominator. I was really impressed.
2.0 von 5 Sternen Standardized Global Learning Organization 10. Oktober 2014
Von Lynn Ellingwood - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I'm not sure of this book yet. It is basically a manual on how the Lego Corporation built a learning organization (as they are called) to create a business environment across languages, cultures, landscapes, etc. I am wary of a corporation that says it has all the answers to a problem that might not be a problem in the first place. The obsession is to get the work place standardized and in working order. Ok, but there is much that might be lost or overlooked in an environment where languages, cultures, landscapes and ultimately people are overlooked for a product like Legos. Concerning.
