The BUILD EXCELLENCE* workshop demonstrates the integrated execution of systems that drive behavior toward the ideal as informed by the principles in the Shingo Model™. The workshop helps to develop a structured approach to execute a cultural transformation. It builds upon a foundation of principles, using tools that already exist within many organizations. You will learn how to build systems that drive behavior that will consistently deliver desired results.


Paul Reed Smith Guitars has been one of the world’s leading guitar makers for the last 35 years. We are excited that they will be the virtual host site for this Shingo BUILD EXCELLENCE workshop. Renowned Shingo Facilitator Drew Butler will take you inside the factory to experience its unique culture, see how their acoustic and electric guitars are made, and you just might get to see the private stock used by stars like Carlos Santana and John Mayer!


In this final Shingo workshop, you will:

  • Design or create a system, guided by the Shingo Model, that changes behaviors to close gaps and drives results closer to organizational goals and purpose.
  • Answer the question: “How do I get everyone on board?”
  • Understand the relationship between behaviors, systems, and principles, and how they drive results.
  • Learn how KBIs drive KPIs, and how this leads to excellent results.


*All Shingo workshops are prerequisites to this capstone workshop.
