2 day workshop

This two-day workshop integrates classroom and on-site experiences at a host facility to build upon the knowledge and experience gained at the DISCOVER EXCELLENCE workshop. It takes you deeper into the Shingo Model™ by focusing on the principles identified in the Enterprise Alignment dimension and the Results dimension:

Think Systemically

Create Constancy of Purpose

Create Value for the Customer

To succeed, organizations must develop management systems that align work and behaviours with principles and direction in ways that are simple, comprehensive, actionable and standardized. Organizations must get results, and create value for customers is ultimately accomplished through the effective alignment of every value stream in an organization. The ENTERPRISE ALIGNMENT & RESULTS workshop continues the discussion around defining ideal behaviours and the systems that drive them, understanding fundamental beliefs and using behavioural benchmarks.


Enterprise Alignment and Results is the on-going process that keeps an organisation aligned with its strategic goals and operational objectives.

Change is constant therefore organisations must constantly work to realign, vertically and horizontally, to continually optimise performance.

The workshop is aimed at leadership teams, senior executives and managers responsible for strategy development and execution.

All too often individual leaders look to protect and optimize their own territories rather than align and improve across the entire enterprise.

Attending the introductory Shingo Discover workshop is recommended to gain an understanding of the Shingo Model and the relationship between Principle driven behaviours, systems and tools.


To better understand what Enterprise Alignment looks like along with the underlying principles.

Challenge the common paradigm of a short-term results-driven environment that creates unsustainable performance and an uncertain future.

Learn how to define and implement the fundamental framework and conditions for successful alignment.

Improve your understanding and application of the key systems involved in achieving both vertical and horizontal alignment by understanding how:

• vertical alignment is used to motivate employees and ensure they are working on the ‘right’ thing to strategically move the organisation toward its long-term aspirations.

• horizontal alignment is used to create value through assuring the operational efficiency and effectiveness of its organisational resources.


The Shingo Model Dimension of Enterprise Alignment and Results.

The workshop will provide a deep reflection on the Principles:

  • Create Constancy of Purpose
  • Think Systemically
  • Create Value for the Customer

Why purpose and a long-term focus provides a unifying vision along with the clarity and stability of effective decision making.

Why the impact of Synergy – how things work together– is far greater than the sum of the parts.

How to align behaviour and performance so that every aspect of an organisation is focused on creating value.

Which key Enterprise Alignment systems are responsible for creating the conditions that cause people to behave in a certain way and how we can move towards ideal behaviours.

Experience practical go, look, sees to understand the application of the Alignment & Results dimension and the associated guiding principles.

We had worked with The Manufacturing Institute’s Peter Sussex before and we totally trusted him and liked his style. He’s very easy to get on with and his Shingo knowledge is very good. He knows what he is talking about.

Ray Howcroft - Lean Enterprise manager at Shingo Prize winning Ball Beverage Packaging, Europe

I would recommend the ARTL programme to other manufacturers without question. I liked the venue, I liked the people and I liked the work. It was a very well structured course and ticked all the boxes for me to improve my role at Rettenmaier.

Sean Collinson, Production Manager - Rettenmaier UK Manufacturing Limited

This is the best lean manager’s course that I’ve ever been on. It was excellent and a lot of that was down to the people who were delivering it. They know a lot about our industry and it felt like they were talking directly to us.

Brian McKay, Operations Director - Smurfit Kappa

There were over a 100 kids taking part and every single one was a superstar! It’s a great thing for employers to take part in. I would encourage anyone employed in manufacturing to come and take part in a Make It Challenge. You’ll feel like the stupidest person in the room - but you’ll love it!

John Grimshaw - Manufacturing applications engineer

I would definitely recommend Six Sigma Green Belt if you are heading towards a CI role or a production role.

Andrew Moule, Production Manager - Muller

I would recommend the MSc without doubt and have now got an appetite to continue learning. It’s completely changed my view on leadership and how I present myself to others.

Gavin Thatcher, MD - Stead McAlpin

Newsprinters was the most impressive facility I have seen, and the highlight of the study tour. I was blown away. If I could bottle this up and sell it I would make a fortune. I came away highly motivated. We will steal your ideas with pride.

OpEx study tour delegate

One of the best things about the Diploma is the exceptionally high quality of the deliverers. They are proven industry experts. I also really enjoyed studying with a great bunch of people. I learned as much from the class discussions as the material.

Phil Buxton, Site Crane Equipment Programme Lead - Sellafield

We were doing some work with the Growth Accelerator and they recommended The Manufacturing Institute’s Accelerated Route to Lean Manufacturing programme. I’ve never been on as course as good – and I’ve been on a lot.

Nick Walker, Operations Manager - Screentek

I would recommend the MSc as it is tailored really well for manufacturers. We actually have three people from the plant doing the MSc and that reflects the emphasis we place on developing our people.

Amanda Perry, Plant Manager - Ecolab


Tuesday 19th - 21st March 2019 at the Worsley Park Marriott Hotel & County Club
