About the Event

This two day workshop integrates virtual classroom and virtual on-site experiences at a host facility to build upon the knowledge and experience gained in the DISCOVER EXCELLENCE* workshop. It begins by teaching you how to clearly define value through the eyes of your customers. It continues the discussion about ideal behaviors, fundamental purpose, and behavioral benchmarks and takes you deeper into the Shingo Model™ by focusing on the principles identified in the Continuous Improvement dimension:

 
Seek Perfection
Embrace Scientific Thinking
Focus on Process
Assure Quality at the Source
Improve Flow & Pull
 

The CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT workshop will deepen your understanding of the relationship between behaviors, systems, and principles, and how they drive results.

*DISCOVER EXCELLENCE is a prerequisite to this workshop.
