You can learn more about how the Shingo Model can drive your culture toward enterprise excellence by attending the Shingo Workshop Series, which includes five workshops.
First is DISCOVER EXCELLENCE, a prerequisite and foundational basis for understanding the Shingo Model and the 10 Shingo Guiding Principles.
Next are three workshops – CULTURAL ENABLERS, CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT and ENTERPRISE ALIGNMENT & RESULTS – are available in the order convenient to the individual or organization. Taking participants deeper into the Shingo Model, they provide a significant understanding of the necessary ideal behaviors required to realize ideal results within the enterprise.
BUILD EXCELLENCE is a capstone workshop, tying together all the learnings from the previous Shingo workshop, teaching participants how to create systems that drive behavior and which will deliver the desired sustained results.
private vs public workshops
All workshops are conducted at a host site. This is an organization that is willing to open its doors to Shingo workshop participants and allow them to learn and practice different aspects of the Shingo Model as part of each workshop.
Private workshops are available only to the leaders, managers and associates of the enterprise providing the host site. This is for organizations that are heavily focused on developing a culture that produces sustained business results. The advantage of a private workshop is that fosters and builds advocacy for the Shingo Model and 10 Shingo Guiding Principles within the organization. A first step to gaining critical mass for the changes desired within the enterprise.
Public workshops are available to the general public, including leaders, managers and associates of any organization wishing to learn more about the Shingo Model and 10 Shingo Guiding Principles. The advantage for the host site is that provides a low risk opportunity to see the Shingo Model in action as a means of determining if the enterprise providing the host site is interested in pursuing its own Shingo journey.
A second advantage to the host site is that through the practice of the Shingo Model by participants, it will receive unvarnished feedback from people who have no “stake in the game”. The participants provide feedback as to outstanding behaviors as well as opportunities for adjustment or improvement.
a note on sustained results
Attendees comment on their Shingo training experience.
It doesn’t take enterprise leaders long to find that the quintessential tools of Lean – Six Sigma, jdoka, SMED, 5S, JIT, quality circles, etc. – are not of themselves, capable of creating sustained results and permanent change.
Since 1988 the Shingo Institute has seen how quickly a tool-based organization can decline in its ability to continually produce the desired results.
However, the Shingo Institute has also has learned that organizations anchoring their systems and tools to principles, and understanding the “why” behind the “how” and the “what”, realize significantly different results from peer organizations.
