Shingo + Automation = Competitive Advantage
Continual process improvement
Enterprise alignment to make sure everyone is bound by a common purpose
The Shingo Prize is the world’s highest standard for organisational excellence.
The Shingo Prize is based on a complete assessment of an organization’s culture and how well it drives world-class results. Shingo examiners focus on the degree to which the Guiding Principles in the Shingo Model™ are evident in the behaviour of every employee. The examiners observe behaviour and determine the frequency, duration, intensity, and scope of the desired principle-based behaviour. They also observe the degree to which leaders focus on principles and culture, and managers focus on aligning systems to drive ideal behaviours at all levels.
This focus is unique in the world and is the most rigorous way to determine whether an organisation is fundamentally improving for the long-term, or just going through the motions of another flavour-of-the-month initiative.

In the past few years, 14 Irish companies have been awarded Shingo status and the country has the highest number of Shingo Prize and Shingo Medallion winners in the world. I am exceptionally proud and honoured that I have been recognised both national and internationally for having played a key role in helping these companies pursue their internationally esteemed accolades and that they continue to pursue excellence in all things that they do.

The Prize is based on a complete assessment of an organisation’s culture and how well it drives world-class results. Examiners observe behaviour and rate the frequency, duration, intensity and scope of the required principle-based behaviour. They look at how managers focus on principles and culture, and how well systems are aligned with ideal behaviours.
Organizations that receive Shingo recognition fall into three categories:
Shingo Prize – a worldwide recognized symbol of an organization’s successful establishment of a culture anchored on principles of enterprise excellence
Shingo Silver Medallion – organizations maturing on the journey with primary focus on tools and systems for improvement
Shingo Bronze Medallion – organizations in the earlier stages of cultural transformation with primary focus on tools for improvement
