WHY ATTEND CULTURAL ENABLERS?
Lean leaders around the world invest substantial time and money on change initiatives that achieve positive results. Most often, they find it is hard to sustain momentum. Each new Lean tool becomes another possible solution or "best practice" only to create a temporary boost in results and a small taste of victory. It doesn’t take many such cycles for associates to feel jaded, frustrated and even burnt out.
The Shingo Model™ is not an additional Lean program or change initiative to implement. Rather, it introduces the 10 Shingo Guiding Principles on which to anchor your current initiatives. It fills the gaps in your efforts towards ideal results and enterprise excellence.
The Enable workshop builds upon the knowledge and experience gained at the DISCOVER EXCELLENCE workshop and takes you deeper into the Shingo Model by focusing on the principles identified as Cultural Enablers: 1) Respect Every Individual & 2) Lead With Humility.
Cultural enablers make it possible for people within the organization to engage in the transformation journey, progress in their understanding and, ultimately, build a culture of enterprise excellence. Enterprise excellence cannot be achieved through top-down directives or piecemeal implementation of tools. It requires a widespread commitment throughout the organization to execute according to the principles of enterprise excellence.

WHAT IS A VISUAL WORKPLACE?
Visual workplace…visual management…workplace visuality. In most companies, these words trigger more questions than answers. That’s why this full-day, interactive session is designed to provide you with the answers you need to let the workplace as well as an understanding of your next steps. Join Gwendolyn Galsworth, leading visuality expert, as she defines and differentiates terms and demonstrates what workplace visuality is and why it is indispensable for every company’s journey to operational excellence.
Through presentation, discussion, and a ton of examples, learn what the technologies of the visual workplace are and how they are used to create a work environment that is self-ordering, self-explaining, self-regulating and self-improving—where what is supposed to happen does happen, on time, every time, day or night, because of visual solutions. Come to appreciate workplace visuality as the language of your operations made visual and the glue that holds all other improvement activities together and makes them sustainable. Learn how—and why—to go beyond KPIs and Team Boards to full-spectrum visual functionality. Walk with Galsworth through the logic of her 10-Doorway Model as you learn about: operator-led visuality (5S-on-steroids); visual standards; visual scheduling/visual displays; visual material control; visual metrics, visual problem-solving, and visual leadership. When you do, you will also better understand the role of visual management in company transformation. Whether you are well on your journey to operational excellence, stalled, or about to begin, visuality is key to transforming your workplace, accelerating your rate of improvement results, and growing a spirited, engaged, and empowered workforce. Visuality is a core component of every successful Shingo Prize challenge. That’s why Robert Miller, former Shingo Prize director, said: “Visuality doesn’t just support a lean culture. It creates it!”
This session is designed to help you:
All attendees will receive The Seminar Participant Manual (150 pages) and a signed copy of Gwendolyn's Shingo-winning book, Visual Workplace-Visual Thinking.
