Conference overview

Organizations are constantly seeking for ways to create a structure that thrives on efficiency and excellence by addressing process elements.  Leaders see the need to start emphasizing key systems and principles which contribute to successful implementation of operational excellence. The question is: How do companies balance and understand the line between a functioning process structure and attaining operational excellence?

Operational excellence has a direct influence over the business process infrastructure of an organization. Most organizations struggle to understand how operational excellence provides a path to achieving process excellence, which enhances the competitive advantage of an organization.  Readdressing the design and improvement dynamics of a process structure will contribute to consistent delivery and proficiency of an organization. The significance in which organizations view the impact of technology is also important when detailing the enforcement of operational excellence.
