The Manufacturing Institute has signed another 3 year deal with the Shingo Institute to deliver courses across the UK and around the world.
The Manchester-based independent charity was the first European partner for the Shingo Institute in 2008 and has since helped more organisations achieve Shingo recognition than any other Shingo affiliate.
These include the first two sites recognised in Europe; Ultraframe and BAE systems, and the first 3 full Shingo Prize Winners in Europe, Abbott Vascular, Depuy Synthes and Newsprinters Eurocentral.
Described as ‘the Nobel Prize of manufacturing’ the Shingo model is based on a set of guiding principles which start with ‘lead with humility.’
The Shingo Institute’s mission is to guide leaders in creating sustainable, principle-based cultures of excellence.
Said Shingo Institute Executive Director Ken Snyder: “We’ve worked well with The Manufacturing Institute for 8 years now and we’re excited to continue such a productive relationship. The wonderful people there have become one of the mainstays that enable the Shingo Institute to accomplish its mission of helping leaders transform their organisations.”
Mark Leeson, Head of Business Development said: “Many of the companies we have taken on a Shingo journey have enjoyed fantastic successes and we are really proud of that track record.
“We have just announced a series of Shingo Discover workshops at great companies like PZ Cussons and Jaguar Land Rover and we are looking forward to welcoming manufacturers keen to learn more about the Shingo model.”
