Shingo Training, Discover Excellence Workshops

Shingo training, Discover Excellence Workshops

The Shingo Training Discover Excellence programme is a foundational, two day workshop that introduces the Shingo Guiding Principles and the Three Insights to Enterprise Excellence. It is designed to raise awareness amongst Leaders and Managers on how Enterprise Excellence can benefit their organisation. The course is a blend of expert input, discussion and best practice learning combined with real time application of learning via “Go and See” assessments. You will attend award winning host facilities where you will learn, and witness at first hand, how Shingo principles drive behaviour throughout the entire organisation to deliver world class results. This course is accredited and certified to both the Shingo Institute and CPD service (Continual Professional Development).

You will learn to align your organisational principles and core values with your systems. Group activities are used to help develop skills in assessing alignment and also how to address misalignments by embedding your principles into your work and management systems.

At the end of this Shingo workshop participants will be able to:

  • Understand the principles of enterprise excellence.
  • Learn the key insights of ideal behaviours.
  • Understand the relationship between behaviours, systems and principles.
  • Learn how systems and behaviours drive results.
  • Learn how KBI’s drive KPI’s and how this leads to excellent results.
  • Use “Go and See” to understand the practical application of the Shingo Guiding Principles.

S A Partners and the Shingo Prize

In 2013 the Shingo Institute formed a collaboration partnership with S A Partners to bring this knowledge to a wider global audience. Our team in Australia are the only Australian based organisation approved by the Shingo Institute to offer support to businesses in that region.

We have worked with many organisations who have gone on to achieve Shingo Awards for example, Vale in Swansea who are the first UK company in 25 years to win the prestigious Shingo Silver Medallion award.  More recently, Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) are the first Financial Services organisation to win the Shingo Silver Medallion.

Also, our Chairman Professor Peter Hines and Gary Griffiths, Partner in S A Partners, are authors of a Shingo-award winning book and part of a very small global community comprising the Senior Faculty of the Shingo Institute . Find out more about our award winning experience with Shingo.

The Global Standard of Sustainable Enterprise Excellence

Twenty-five years ago, The Shingo Prize was created at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University as a way to recognise great organisations and to set a standard toward which the world may aspire. It is now globally recognised as the benchmark for Enterprise Excellence.

The award was created in honour of the late Dr. Shigeo Shingo. Dr. Shingo has been described as an ‘engineering genius’ who helped us to understand the concepts, systems, and techniques that, under his tutelage, became fundamental to the renowned Toyota Production System, often referred to now as the Toyota Business System.

During this journey, the Shingo Institute has experienced and learned many valuable and powerful things. This has given them a greater understanding of what is required for organisations to achieve lasting, sustainable results. This knowledge has been captured in the Shingo Model.

The Shingo Model

The Shingo Model is based around 10 Guiding Principles which align the systems within an organisation and the specific tools required to produce results.
