The Essence of Excellence workshop

EssenceofExcellence Workshop Owen Mumford banner image

Over the last 5 years Peter Hines and Chris Butterworth have conducted research in over 100 companies worldwide. Of these, around 40 have shown themselves to have, in their different ways, the Essence of Excellence we were looking for. This has culminated in the book, The Essence of Excellence, which launched earlier this year.

In the book, Peter and Chris explored what separates the really great from the merely good? The answer lies not in what you see, or the tools people use, but in the feel, the pure essence of these organisations. It is the mind-set, the language, the confidence and the sheer passion for excellence. What these sites do have is a set of Principle-led Behaviours, effective Core Operating Systems and a very sustainable approach.

In this workshop we explore what they have learned, develop a framework for this thinking and illustrate it with examples, cases and anecdotes from those that have captured the Essence of Excellence.

This includes many award-winning sites and particular those that have been recognised by the Shingo Institute.
