Shingo Prize and our Shingo Heritage

Peter Hines Recieving the Shingo PrizeThe Shingo Prize was created twenty-five years ago, at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business of Utah State University as a way to recognise great organisations and to set a standard toward which the world may aspire. It is now globally recognised as the benchmark for Enterprise Excellence. During this journey, the Shingo Institute has experienced and learned many valuable and powerful things. This has given them a greater understanding of what is required for organisations to achieve lasting, sustainable results. This knowledge has been captured in the Shingo Model. In 2013 the Shingo Institute formed a collaborative partnership with S A Partners to bring this knowledge to a wider global audience. Since then, S A Partners has been helping to update and improve Shingo related courses and the consulting support activities offered to organisations. This support work has involved Professor Peter Hines and Gary Griffiths of S A Partners who are part of a very small global community who are Senior Faculty of the Shingo Institute.

The Shingo Prize

The Shingo Prize is awarded to organisations that demonstrate a culture where the principles of Performance Excellence are deeply embedded into the thinking and behaviour of all leaders, managers, and associates. Performance is measured both in terms of business results and the degree to which business, management, and work systems are driving appropriate and ideal behaviour at all levels. Leadership is beginning to focus on ensuring that principles of Performance Excellence are deeply imbedded into the culture and regularly assessed for improvement. The Shingo Model is based around 10 Guiding Principles which align the Systems within an organisation and the specific Tools required to produce results.
