Systems Design - A Virtual Shingo Institute Workshop
The second two-day workshop builds upon the knowledge and experience gained in the DISCOVER EXCELLENCE* workshop, and focuses on the Systems and Tools diamonds in the Shingo Model. It begins by explaining that all work in an organization is the outcome of a system. Systems must be designed to create a specific end objective; otherwise, they evolve on their own. Systems drive the behavior of people, and variation in behavior leads to variation in results. Organizational excellence requires well-designed systems to drive ideal behaviors that are required to produce sustainable results.
Classes meet 8:30 AM to 5 PM Eastern time, unless otherwise noted.
- Discover three types of essential systems.
- Explore five required communication tools for each system.
- Learn how to create and use system maps.
- Understand system standard work and how it drives improvement.
