Shingo Workshops by Shingo Licensed Affiliates can make the difference between transformation and the status quo.

Read descriptions of the five Shingo workshops below, along with scheduled times and locations for each.


Attendees comment on their Shingo training experience.

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 first hand 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 five Shingo workshops described below 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 operational excellence.

Shingo Workshops


DISCOVER EXCELLENCE

This foundational, two-day workshop introduces the Shingo Model, the Shingo Guiding Principles and the Three Insights to Enterprise Excellence™. With active discussions and on-site learning at a host organization, this program is a highly interactive experience. It is designed to make your learning meaningful and immediately applicable as you discover how to release the latent potential in an organization to achieve enterprise excellence. It provides the basic understanding needed in all Shingo workshops; therefore, it is a pre-requisite to all the other workshops, and concludes with the BUILD EXCELLENCE workshop.

CULTURAL ENABLERS

This two-day workshop integrates classroom and on-site experiences at a host facility to build upon the knowledge and experience gained at the DISCOVER EXCELLENCE workshop. It takes you deeper into the Shingo Model™ by focusing on the principles identified in the Cultural Enablers dimension:

Cultural Enablers principles make it possible for people in an organization to engage in the transformation journey, progress in their understanding and, ultimately build a culture of enterprise excellence. Enterprise excellence cannot be achieved through top-down directives or piecemeal implementation of tools. It requires a widespread organizational commitment. The CULTURAL ENABLERS workshop will help you define ideal behaviors and the systems that drive them using behavioral benchmarks.

CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

This three-day workshop integrates classroom and on-site experiences at a host facility to build upon the knowledge and experience gained at the DISCOVER EXCELLENCE workshop. It begins by teaching you how to clearly define value through the eyes of your customers. It continues the discussion about ideal behaviors, fundamental purpose and behavioral benchmarks as they relate to the principles of Continuous Improvement, and takes you deeper into the Shingo Model™ by focusing on the principles identified in the Continuous Improvement dimension:

The CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT workshop deepens your understanding of the relationship between behaviors, systems and principles and how they drive results.

ENTERPRISE ALIGNMENT & RESULTS

This two-day workshop integrates classroom and on-site experiences at a host facility to build upon the knowledge and experience gained at the DISCOVER EXCELLENCE workshop. It takes you deeper into the Shingo Model™ by focusing on the principles identified in the Enterprise Alignment dimension and the Results dimension:

To succeed, organizations must develop management systems that align work and behaviors with principles and direction in ways that are simple, comprehensive, actionable and standardized. Organizations must get results, and creating value for customers is ultimately accomplished through the effective alignment of every value stream in an organization. The ENTERPRISE ALIGNMENT & RESULTS workshop continues the discussion around defining ideal behaviors and the systems that drive them, understanding fundamental beliefs and using behavioral benchmarks.

See the schedule

BUILD EXCELLENCE

This two-day capstone workshop integrates classroom and on-site experiences at a host facility to solidify the knowledge and experience gained from the previous four Shingo workshops. The BUILD EXCELLENCE workshop demonstrates the integrated execution of systems that drive behavior toward the ideal as informed by the principles in the Shingo Model™. The workshop helps to develop a structured approach to execute a cultural transformation. It builds upon a foundation of principles, using tools that already exist within many organizations. It teaches you how to build systems that drive behavior which will consistently deliver desired results.
