Operational Excellence is built on these Core Principles:
Operational Excellence (OpEx) is a philosophy. It is used to describe how you execute your operations in order to achieve your vision by making operational excellence your strategy. It’s commonly described as doing the right thing, the right way, every time and developing a problem solving culture.
To develop your business, organization and people, your business needs a continuous improvement system. Our OpEx certification program has been developed with your business needs in mind. Investing in your people helps you to be self-sufficient for any improvement initiative, rapid cost savings, problem solving etc. Allowing your key people to learn at their own pace with a recognized certification program, increases employee satisfaction as well as business results. Would your organization benefit from answering the following questions?
How do you identify and analyze your losses?
What is the most effective way to eradicate your problems/losses?
How do you sustain the gains?
How do you use your resources in the smartest way?
How do you manage and develop your culture of change?
What is the most rewarding achievement and recognition for an individual who has participated or
improvement project that has been successful? They become recognized as leaders in the
organization and especially in the team they're working in. Often they find that their voice
gets heard, they have a different type of respect and they have more impact on what's happening
in the specific team that they're working in.
Many have seen a career development, you get recognized in the business as a person that
improves and supports the business, and supports other people in the organization. You become
known to the management and also known as the person who can drive and develop. Which many times
have shown up as a career development, a new position, and sometimes a position that didn't even
exist in the past?
A safe work environment where nobody gets hurt, with a culture of continuous improvement and a
well trained critical mass of people that deliver outstanding business results. Improving your
business KPIs is the norm. Attracting and retaining the best talent is now easier and develops a
culture of belonging. Focusing on customer satisfaction and value creation brings growth, and
the freedom to execute and build the organization your way.
