Shingo Workshops 2019 banner

Visit award winning locations with S A Partners schedule of Shingo workshops for 2019 which include the Discover Excellence and Shingo Enterprise Excellence introduction workshops. All Discover Excellence workshops are accredited and certified to both the Shingo Institute and CPD service (Continual Professional Development).

The Shingo approach is a way of creating sustainable and excellent results. This involves overcoming two major huddles:

  1. Moving beyond the ‘implement the tools stage’ to look at complete systems
  2. Bridging the functional& cultural change gap by connecting the traditional technical approaches to improvement with the leadership and change management required
