Shingo Model Workshops: Discover Excellence 

Delivered through our affiliation with The Shingo Institute, this Discover Excellence programme is a two-day Shingo workshop introducing the Shingo Model, the Shingo Guiding Principles, and the Three Insights of Organisational Excellence.

The Shingo Discover Excellence Workshop is highly interactive, with leading education insights, extensive peer-to-peer discussions and on-site learning through three Gemba visits at an excellent host organisation. 


The Workshop is a meaningful experience and your team will learn how to release the hidden potential in your business to achieve Organisational Excellence.

This Shingo training course is the gateway to the other workshops in the Shingo series (Systems Design, Cultural Enablers, Continuous Improvement, Enterprise Alignment, and Build Excellence). If you’re starting out on your Shingo journey, we’d recommend joining one of our public workshops. For those seeking to transform their organisation with the Shingo model, we’d suggest hosting your own workshop on-site.
