Shingo Workshops

Learn more about how the Shingo Model can drive your culture toward enterprise excellence by attending the Shingo Workshop Series, which includes six workshops. The first workshop in the series, DISCOVER EXCELLENCE, is a prerequisite and provides the foundational understanding of the Shingo Model and the 10 Shingo Guiding Principles. The second workshop is SYSTEMS DESIGN and teaches foundational understanding of what constitutes a system, how to map it, and how to make certain it improves continuously. The following three workshops — CULTURAL ENABLERS, CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT and ENTERPRISE ALIGNMENT & RESULTS — can be taken in any order. These workshops take participants deeper into the Shingo Model and provide a more profound understanding of the ideal behaviors necessary to achieve ideal results within an organization. BUILD EXCELLENCE is the capstone workshop that takes all the detailed learnings from the previous Shingo workshops and teaches participants how to build systems that drive behavior which will consistently deliver desired results.

Leaders quickly find that Lean tools such as Six Sigma, jidoka, SMED, 5S, JIT, quality circles, etc., are not independently capable of effecting lasting change. Since 1988 we’ve seen firsthand how quickly tool-based organizations decline in their ability to sustain results. On the other hand, organizations that anchor their improvement initiatives to principles — or understand the “why” behind the “how” and the “what” — experience significantly different results.

To best illustrate our findings, we developed the Shingo Model™, the accompanying Shingo Guiding Principles and the Three Insights of Enterprise Excellence. The Shingo workshops are designed with the input of many seasoned instructors, leaders and consultants to help you transform your organization’s culture to one of continuous improvement and organizational excellence.
