around the Shingo Model™, including DISCOVER EXCELLENCE, CULTURAL ENABLERS, CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT, and ENTERPRISE ALIGNMENT / RESULTS. It addresses the integrated execution of systems that drive behavior toward the ideal as informed by the principles in the model and answers the question: “How does my organization use the Shingo Model to transform its culture into one of enterprise excellence?” BUILD EXCELLENCE helps build a structured roadmap to execute a cultural transformation built upon a foundation of principles, using tools that already exist within many organizations, to build systems that drive behavior to consistently deliver desired results. This course guides attendees through the development of an execution/deployment methodology that is customized to their organization’s specific cultural needs and desired results.

build excellence


The Shingo Institute’s mission is to guide leaders in creating sustainable cultures of excellence based on universally accepted principles. The Institute’s vision is to be the global standard of excellence in every industry. The result of 25 years of organizational assessment and study is the Shingo Model™ for enterprise excellence.

The Shingo Model™ is based on the Three Insights of Enterprise Excellence™:

 1. Ideal Results Require Ideal Behaviors

2. Beliefs and Systems Drive Behavior

3. Principles Inform Ideal Behaviors

The principles apply in any organization and ultimately provide the scaffolding for sustaining any operational excellence effort. A basic understanding of the Shingo Model™ is developed through four successive workshops.

Cultural enablers make it possible for people within the organization to engage in the transformation journey, progress in their understanding and, ultimately, build a culture of enterprise excellence. Enterprise excellence is not achievable through top-down directives or piecemeal implementation of tools. It requires a widespread commitment throughout the organization to execute according to the principles of enterprise excellence.
