Prepare to Challenge for the Shingo Prize!

This workshop, led by HKPO’s licensed Shingo Examiners, will help your organization prepare for the Shingo Prize!

The Shingo Prize is based on a complete assessment of an organization’s culture and how well it drives world-class results. Shingo examiners focus on the degree to which the Guiding Principles in the Shingo Model™ are evident in the behavior of every employee. The examiners observe behavior and determine the frequency, duration, intensity, and scope of the desired principle-based behavior. They also observe the degree to which leaders focus on principles and culture, and managers focus on aligning systems to drive ideal behaviors at all levels. 

This focus is unique in the world and is the most rigorous way to determine whether an organization is fundamentally improving for the long-term, or just going through the motions of another flavor-of-the-month initiative.

Whether you are conducting the Challenge to win the Shingo Prize or use it as part of your progression in your continuous improvement journey, this workshop will help you best use the Shingo Model™ as your standard of excellence.
