Licensed Affiliate since 2008, the first in Europe

Our involvement in this prestigious award has gathered pace in recent years as the number of companies seeking recognition or assessment against the global Shingo standard has increased.

​The Manufacturing Institute is not only the first partner of the Shingo Institute in Europe but has helped more organisations achieve recognition than any other Shingo affiliate, including 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 results.

The Shingo Model is not just another initiative; it is a new way of thinking.

Shingo Workshops

Bespoke Training

Building a training programme that will meet your exact requirements, we take elements of our public programmes and wider content library and use your data and experiences to make it a perfect fit for you and your business. You will be assigned an account manager and practitioner that will take you through the complete process through to delivery. In the coming weeks and months, we will be sharing case studies highlighting where we have supported manufacturing businesses through bespoke training packages delivering outstanding results.

On Demand Content

On-demand content is something new that we are offering to support busy manufacturing professionals – we are developing purpose-built content and delivering it through Vimeo On-Demand. This is a perfect opportunity to develop yourself and team while offering maximum flexibility. We have developed a wealth of content from entry level lean tools through to an introduction to the Shingo Model – content is available over a series of short videos.  

We will be adding content continuously so make sure you check the site regularly for new releases.


In our experience of working with Senior Leadership Teams they often do not function as a team.
All to often members of the Senior Leadership Team manage their own function -they meet frequently to review optional performance but seldom focus on themselves as a high performing team.
It is not until they work on their team dynamics and start to trust eachother that you can truly say they are a team, at which point you’ll start seeing fantastic business results.
