Shingo Training, Discover Excellence Workshops

Shingo Discover Excellence event

The programme is a 2 day hands on practical Shingo workshop covering the Shingo principles of Enterprise Excellence. You will attend an award winning host facility where you will learn, and witness at first hand, how Shingo principles drive behaviour throughout the entire organisation to deliver world class results. This course is accredited and certified to both the Shingo Institute and CPD service (Continual Professional Development).

You will learn to align your organisational principles and core values with your systems. Group activities are used to help develop skills in assessing alignment and also how to address misalignments by embedding your principles into your work and management systems.

At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

  • Describe the benefits of focusing on Shingo principles
  • Articulate principle-driven behaviour
  • Identify how tools link to systems
  • See and assess behaviour to provide constructive-feedback
  • Explore what adjustments could be made to improve systems in driving ideal behaviour for world class results

Our first event in Europe was held at the Shingo Silver Medallion winning refinery, Vale based in Wales, UK. You can find out what the students thought of the training and how the workshop went by reading the news item.

Organisations who have adopted the Shingo principles, have seen an increased level of success in areas such as Costs (increased revenue, reduced inventory, reduced lead times etc), Safety & Quality ( zero lost time for accidents, reduction in scrap, defects and non-conformance), On Time in Full & New Product Introduction (increases in OTIF by as much as 95%  & NPI up to 100%).
