Shingo Study Tour to Ireland

To see our latest list of Shingo workshops visit our events page.

The Shingo Inst are running a study tour to exemplar sites throughout Ireland on a 5 day experience which will immerse you in the lean culture of many organisations pursuing enterprise excellence.

You will discover first-hand what is at the heart of the lean business model through a series of plant tours, workshops, and peer networking. Watch the tools and systems of operational excellence in action. Visit Shingo recipient companies that demonstrate excellence in the fundamentals such as 5S, visual management, problem solving, standardized work, quality at the source, safety, continuous flow, intelligent automation, and much more.

This tour creates a new lens for many to truly see beyond the tools and discover what is at the root of enterprise excellence cultures. Find out more and book…
