8:10 AM Gaining business value from Operational Excellence

There has never been a more critical time for energy and utilities companies to be focused on Operational Excellence – its critical not just for survival but in order to thrive in the years ahead. The innovators that have strategically invested in operational ef ciency programs are demonstrating their operational resilience – while marginal operators must signi cantly improve in order to position themselves for long-term growth in an increasingly competitive marketplace. With so many companies hampered by complexity and inef ciency, now is the time to optimize your operations to yield more productivity and fully harvest the bene ts of technology, scale and standardization.
Many of us have an Operational Excellence or CI program in place – but does it truly link planning and operations to strategy? Are you getting the most business value you possible can out of it? What about metrics – what is the true impact of OE on your business’ financial performance? Do you know?
This dynamic panel will discuss these issues and more – including how to reduce complexity and variability with clearly defined standards and accountabilities, build the most compelling case for deeper OE focus and demonstrate to your executive leaders and shareholders the true impact that Operational Excellence can have on the bottom line.
