(The Shingo Institute: Copenhagen) -- The Shingo Institute, part of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University, has set Nov. 30, 2016 through Dec. 2, 2016, as the dates for the European Shingo Conference. The purpose of this conference is for attendees to hear leaders in manufacturing, healthcare, services, and other industries speak about their experiences with the principles, behaviors, and systems that enable organizations to achieve excellence.

Along with site tours of local companies, topics of the conference will include Six Sigma innovation, the relationship between human resources and continuous improvement, creating a principle-based culture, embedding the Shingo Guiding Principles, and similar topics. Some of the prominent speakers at the conference include:
• Håkan Forss from King
• Christian Houborg from H. Lundbeck A/S, Denmark
• Seán Kelly from Abbott Diagnostics (2016 Shingo Prize recipient)
• Shahir Rona from Novo Nordisk A/S
• Kenneth Snyder from the Shingo Institute
• Billy Taylor from Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co.
• Ida Gremyr from Chalmers University of Technology
• Marc Noppen from University Hospital, Brussels
• Mustafa Kemal Altay from Bosch

Participants are encouraged to pre-register for the conference by visiting the conference’s website.

Attendees of the European Shingo Conference will have ample opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals in a highly relevant and social atmosphere. With plenty of networking opportunities throughout each day, attendees will 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 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 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.
