DISCOVER EXCELLENCE is the gateway to the other five workshops in the series. This foundational, two-day workshop introduces the Shingo Model™, the Shingo Guiding Principles, and the Three Insights of Organizational Excellence™. With active discussions and on-site learning at a host organization, this program is a highly interactive experience. It is designed to make your learning meaningful and immediately applicable as you discover how to release the latent potential in an organization to achieve organizational excellence. It provides the basic understanding needed in all Shingo workshops; therefore, it is a prerequisite to all the other workshops.

As a participant, you will:

  • Learn and understand the Shingo Model.
  • Discover the Three Insights of Organizational Excellence.
  • Explore how the Shingo Guiding Principles inform the ideal behaviors that lead to sustainable results.
  • Understand the behavioral assessment process through an interactive case study and on-site learning.
