Why online Masterclasses?

Operational Excellence (OPEX) is a must for every organization, whatever its nature. Service Organizations in particular are struggling to optimize their Operational Excellence, in addition with Budget cuts and a growing demand from customers for the higher levels of service.

Our Masterclasses primarily focus on ‘service organizations’, such as public administrations, finance, banking, insurance and utility companies. Because OPEX is less tangible in these environments, it is also much more difficult to achieve there…

This Masterclass targets mainly C-levels and their supporting experts – the first group to be convinced of the importance of an organization-wide and continuous Operational Excellence approach.

This Operational Excellence Masterclass aims at creating awareness, defining the challenges and providing best practices for service management to evolve towards operational excellence.

How do we differentiate?

This masterclass is based on a unique integrated and practice-based methodology and maturity framework specifically focusing on service companies.

In between the 3 sessions, this masterclass includes practical exercises that reach out to the specific challenges of your own organization.

Each coach, acting in this program, is professionally committed and has a large state of expertise in one of the aspects that – together – can make operational excellence happen in an organization. All of them have experience with service organizations of private and public sector.

After 3 sessions, participants will understand why the decision to reach out for Operational Excellence is an engagement, impacting organizational culture…

For whom?

Higher middle and top management, from team leaders to C-Level, operations managers (COO), ICT-managers, CFO’s, strategy directors, HR managers, etc. and their direct reports, plus internal strategy-, lean- , performance- and process-experts.

Processes need the right people at the right place at the right time. How can we manage all this and why is this so crucial?
