Discover Excellence is the Shingo Institute's foundational, two-day workshop that introduces the Shingo Model™, the Guiding Principles and the Three Insights to Enterprise Excellence™. With real-time discussions and on-site learning at UW’s Grant & Contract Accounting and Creative Communications, this program is a highly interactive experience. It is designed to make your learning meaningful and immediately applicable as you learn how to release the latent potential in your organization and achieve enterprise excellence.

Leaders around the world have invested a substantial amount of time and money on initiatives that achieve positive results. However, it is hard to maintain and sustain momentum. Each new tool becomes another possible solution or “best practice” only to create confusion that often results in what we call the “sugar high” – a temporary boost in results accompanied by a fleeting feeling of victory. People begin to believe that sustainable solutions are not only elusive, but that each new initiative eventually becomes “flavor-of-the-month” and leaves unfulfilled aspirations.

As a DISCOVER participant, you will:
LEARN and understand the Shingo Model.
DISCOVER the Three Insights of Enterprise Excellence™.
EXPLORE how the Guiding Principles inform ideal behaviors that ultimately lead to sustainable results.
UNDERSTAND the behavioral assessment process through an interactive case study and on-site learning.
APPLY your learning with a call to action.
