Join us and our Special Guest Speaker to celebrate the holiday season and another year of serving the section with a special Chinese buffet at Edmonton’s famous The Lingnan Restaurant (many vegetarian and gluten-free dishes).
Don Dinero has over fifty years of experience designing and implementing manufacturing methods and processes and is the principal of The TWI Learning Partnership. He has addressed problems in all aspects of operations including but not limited to change management, personnel, labor unions, production systems, and production control. His BS degree in Mechanical Engineering is from the University of Rochester and his MBA and MS (Career and Human Resource Development) degrees are from the Rochester Institute of Technology. He received his Professional Engineering license (NYS) in 1983 and his Certification in Production and Inventory Control from APICS in 1986. Don deliberately sought degrees in these areas so that he would have a balanced academic background in technology, business, and organizational development.
In 2002, Mr. Dinero learned about TWI (Training Within Industry) and its reemergence that was beginning in the U.S. He became certified as a TWI trainer in the three "J" courses and began to study all the material he could find on the subject. His studies and talks on TWI culminated in the book "Training Within Industry: The Foundation of Lean", published by Productivity Press. This book won a Shingo Prize for Research in 2006. TWI Case Studies: Standard Work, Continuous Improvement and Teamwork also published by Productivity Press, followed in 2011. His most recent book is titled “The TWI Facilitator’s Guide – How to Use the TWI Programs Successfully”.
His consulting practice focuses solely on the TWI programs. To that end, he delivers training in all three of the J programs and in Program Development. In keeping with the “multiplier effect” cited by the Training within Industry Service, Don also offers Train the Trainer sessions for all four programs. This allow an organization’s employees to independently deliver the training.
