The Shingo Institute seeks to affiliate with organizations that are well established in targeted regions around the world and are interested in becoming Shingo Licensed Affiliates. A potential affiliate organization’s core business must be in transforming cultures of enterprise excellence. Consultants from a potential affiliate organization should have expertise in the following areas: Lean, continuous improvement, operational excellence, enterprise excellence, executive coaching and training at all levels within an organization.
To become a Shingo Licensed Affiliate, an organization must be well-versed in the Shingo Model™ and assessment methodology. This is first achieved by consultants attending the Shingo workshops, and then becoming trained and certified to facilitate Shingo workshops. Potential certified facilitators should be experienced in training and development and be willing to share their expertise with those seeking enterprise excellence.
