During the conference awards gala, there will be various Shingo awards presented to recipients, including:
- Boston Scientific Cork of Cork, Ireland
- Meda Rottapharm Ltd. – a Mylan company of Dublin, Ireland
In addition to presentations by groundbreaking leaders, the agenda of the International Shingo Conference includes several opportunities for attendees to connect with like-minded professionals in a highly relevant and social atmosphere. The conference is designed for attendees to be able to develop new contacts and beneficial relationships. They'll also be able to infuse their organizations with the Shingo Model™ to help transform their cultures to make continuous improvement a sustainable reality.
Past attendees of the conference have reported various benefits from attending. To maximize these benefits, the Shingo Institute recommends that organizations send three or more leaders and/or managers to the event. Experience has shown that this maximizes the likelihood that the principles learned at the conference will be incorporated in the culture, behavior and systems of the organization.
About the Shingo Institute
The Shingo Institute is home of the Shingo Prize, an award that recognizes organizations that demonstrate an exceptional culture that fosters continuous improvement. Part of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University, the Shingo Institute is named after Japanese industrial engineer and Toyota advisor, Shigeo Shingo. Dr. Shingo distinguished himself as one of the world's thought leaders in concepts, management systems and improvement techniques that have become known as the Toyota Production System.
Drawing from Dr. Shingo's teachings and years of experience working with organizations worldwide, the Shingo Institute developed the Shingo Model™ which is the basis for its several educational offerings, including workshops, study tours and conferences. Workshops are available in multiple languages through the Institute's licensed affiliates.
