We confirmed final numbers for 2016 a few days ago and I thought it appropriate to share some of the progress of the Shingo Institute in 2016. Here are some key highlights:
• Our affiliates conducted 123 workshops compared to 81 in 2015 – an increase of 52%.
• 1,989 executives attended our workshops compared to 1,171 in 2015 – an increase of 70%.
• 29 executives joined us on study tours compared to 16 in 2015 – an increase of 81%.
• We launched our new capstone Build Excellence workshop.

We welcomed Möbius Business Redesign of Ghent, Belgium; Young Consulting Group (扬智咨询集团) of Beijing, China; Key Performance Consulting of Minnesota, USA; the Institute for Enterprise Excellence of Utah, USA; and Sustainable Performance Group of Virginia, USA, as new affiliate partners. These affiliate partners brought our total to 15 affiliate partners.

We launched a research track at our European Summit in Copenhagen. It was a smashing success with several enlightening research presentations. In 2017, we plan to publish the best of these research reports in a special journal edition. Due to popular demand, our research track will continue at our annual conference in Atlanta this April.

The Shingo Prize
And, of course, we celebrated with Boston Scientific of Cork, Ireland, and Rexam Beverage Can of Queretaro, Mexico – the 2016 recipients of the Shingo Prize.
If you would like to see all recent Shingo recipients, including our 2017 recipients, please visit us at: http://shingo.org/awards.
These results demonstrate progress toward the achievement of our mission:
“We conduct cutting-edge research, provide relevant education, perform insightful enterprise assessment, and recognize organizations committed to achieving sustainable world-class results.”
We appreciate all of the help and support we receive from our affiliate partners, our Board, and all of you. Here’s to another great leap forward in 2017.
