Designing Culture for Results


Designed for leaders, this workshop takes you through our award-winning approach to achieving commitment for your cultural transformation, defining a unique philosophy and vision for your management system, tailoring key systems to connect your vision to results everyday, and designing a development model rather than installing a set of tools and techniques.

Committing to Cultural Change - We will begin our workshop reviewing the keys to getting buy-in and commitment to cultural change at the individual, team and organizational level.  The need for buy-in begins at the leadership level with a well defined vision for the future and an aligned strategy driven by a principle-based approach.

Defining the Philosophy  - Next, we will discuss the importance of defining a unique organizational philosophy.  This philosophy includes a long-term vision of where you are going as an organization, and a well crafted message of why the pursuit of a culture of excellence is critical to realizing your vision and generating results.

Tailoring Systems For Results - After defining your unique philosophy, the workshop will explore ways organizations tailor their systems to align their philosophy, systems and results.  Our approach to designing, aligning and tailoring systems is rooted in the Own the Gap model and has been used by more than 500 organizations in 14 countries.

Using a Development Mindset - Finally, leveraging our 20+ years experience and more than 40 Shingo recipients, we will teach you how world-class organizations approach implementation as development process, rather than a project-based rollout of tools.  We will help you understand both the benefits and the challenges associated with developing teams, systems and leaders.
