Intro to SHINGO Workshop

People are the only organisational asset with and infinite ability to increase in value’ The Shingo Institute.

The Shingo Model is a proven philosophy and framework to move organisations towards sustainable ideal results.

In this half workshop we will introduce the origin and core philosophy behind the Shingo Model. We will review the process of challenging for a Shingo Prize and review what Shingo examiners look for.

By investing in your people, you are investing not just in driving continuous improvement activity today, but enabling a sustainable platform for culture change long into the future.

A long-term investment in development programmes that engage the hearts; minds and hands of those involved is critical.

This webinar will provide a holistic and sustainable view of how you can build an academy that delivers results:

We will cover:

  • Why building both Continuous Improvement and Leadership skills is critical to sustainable transformation
  • The foundations of a Continuous Improvement Academy – key elements that will enable sustainable continuous improvement and deliver results
  • How you can ensure training in all its forms is impactful and meaningful
  • How to develop a roadmap and put in place governance to ensure the Academy delivers a Return on Investment.

You will be engaging with Nicky (One of our senior Facilitators and Leaders) and each other throughout and, we want to see and hear you, so please be prepared to share video and audio. Join us from your own internet-connected device, preferably a laptop or desktop computer rather than a phone or tablet. One person, one device. Join us from a quiet place, which is not shared with other participants on the session.

You do not need any specialist software or to have used Zoom before. The link above is all you need. If it’s your first time, there’s a widget to download to your device at the start so allow a few minutes for this.
Video – have your webcam on, we want to connect with you (Please don’t worry about how you look or the state of your background, we are all working with what is possible right now rather than what might be perfect!).
Audio –For the best sound use a headset with microphone and a USB connection but your mobile phone headphones plugged into your device audio work really well too. If you don’t have either of these them you can use the sound on your device but you will need to be somewhere quiet!
Notetaking – have a pen and paper handy so you can take notes.
Please don’t plan any other remote meetings in between the two session, it can be intense being online and we’d love you to be fresh for this learning and to get the most from it.

Empowering a Culture of Continuous Improvement in HR

Empowering business transformation means ensuring effective strategy deployment exists to drive the results desired.  There are a number of strategy deployment approaches that could be adopted.

Join us to find out how you can use strategy deployment to empower your teams.

 

Strategy deployment requires the alignment of Key Result Indicators and Key Behavioural Indicators to be successful.

SHINGO DISCOVER EXCELLENCE @ Coloplast (Denmark)

This two day SHINGO DISCOVER EXCELLENCE workshop will be delivered onsite at Coloplast (Denmark) between 14 & 15 September 2022 in 8 hr sessions between 08:00 & 17:00pm each day.

About the course

The workshop will be led by experienced Shingo facilitator Fiona Buttrey, and you will hear first hand, how Shingo principles drive behaviour throughout the entire organisation to deliver world class results.

DISCOVER EXCELLENCE is the foundational workshop that introduces the SHINGO MODEL, the Shingo Guiding Principles and the Three Insights to Organisational Excellence. With active discussions this workshop will provide 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 your organisation to enable you to achieve organizational excellence. It provides the basic understanding needed in all Shingo Workshops, therefore is a pre-requisite to them.

What makes the Shingo Workshops powerful is that each workshop includes a reflection on an organization (the Host Site). This allows participants to reflect on the theory and apply their learning by interviewing various people in the organisation. In workshops held onsite this usually takes the form of a Gemba walk where team members are interviewed at their workplace.

As a participant, you will:

LEARN and understand the Shingo Model.

DISCOVER the Three Insights of Organizational Excellence.

EXPLORE how the Shingo Guiding Principles inform ideal behaviours that ultimately lead to sustainable results.

UNDERSTAND the behavioural assessment process through an interactive case study and on-site learning.

How this is delivered:

The interactive online training consists of:

2x 8 hour sessions (08:00 – 17:00pm).
Over 2 days
1 hour Coaching Follow Up – post workshop with your regional Shingo Facilitator
