Create Sustainable Continuous Improvement in Your Organization
The Shingo Model™ has been adopted by hundreds of the world’s most admired companies. Shingo Workshops provide practical insights and instruction, so you can use its guiding principles to achieve a culture of sustainable excellence in your organization.
To succeed, organizations must develop management systems that align work and behaviors with principles and direction in ways that are simple, comprehensive, actionable and standardized. Organizations must get results, and creating value for customers is ultimately accomplished through the effective alignment of every value stream in an organization. The ENTERPRISE ALIGNMENT workshop continues the discussion around defining ideal behaviors and the systems that drive them.
One of the best features of Shingo workshops are the Go & Observe activities. We carry these valuable, engaging, and interactive experiences over to the virtual workshops as well. Renowned Shingo Facilitators Gerhard Plenert and Drew Butler will take you on a virtual tour of our host site with an on-site representative, where you’ll have the opportunity to see Shingo Principles in action in a real-world setting. They will take you step by step thru their journey and discuss the successes and problems they have faced along their way.
This two-day virtual 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 takes you deeper into the Shingo Model™ by focusing on the principles identified in the Enterprise Alignment dimension:
- Think Systemically
- Create Constancy of Purpose
- Create Value for the Customer
*DISCOVER EXCELLENCE is a prerequisite to this workshop.
