Not every organisation we work with decides they want to make a Shingo challenge. This is not the point of the Shingo approach. However, for many it is a good recognition of your people’s collective effort and can be highly motivational.
If you do wish to make a challenge, we can draw on our experience of almost 20 challenges to help you. We can help you:
- Understand the challenge process
- Prepare an achievement report
- Respond to clarification questions from the Shingo Examiner team
- Prepare for an on-site assessment and the examiners review
Our team are all licensed Shingo trainers with a detailed understanding of the Shingo model. Fiona Buttrey, John Quirke, Colin Scott, and Richard Young, are Shingo examiners who have worked with the Shingo Institute to assess sites challenging for Shingo recognition. This has given them a deep understanding of the assessment process, and they can advise potential challengers on what to expect during an examination.
Fiona Buttrey was the CI lead at Vale’s Clydach Nickel Refinery throughout their Shingo journey, culminating in a Shingo Silver Medallion. This has given her practical experience of how to write a Shingo achievement report, and how to prepare for and execute a site visit.
