This presentation on leveraging digital transformation to deliver operational excellence will cover the opportunity landscape and methodology to drive digital transformation (digitalization) and operational excellence, organizational structure, & glimpses of the OE framework by leveraging digital transformation to deliver operational excellence.

Opportunities Landscape & Methodology To Drive Digital Transformation.

We believe that the most fundamental way of identifying opportunities is through “the 3Ms.” These are Mura, Muri, and Muda. These Japanese terms stand for unevenness or variability, overburden or undercapacity, and waste, respectively.

Digitalization To Drive Organizational Structure

A Group Center for Operational Excellence structure was created to identify, exploit, and translate the opportunity landscape into viable improvement initiatives under the umbrella of the Business Excellence Framework. The structure provides centralized governance and drives the institutionalization of OE, leveraging digital transformation – Digitalization.

Operational Excellence Framework – An Introduction

The OE Framework is an agile, scalable, holistic, yet flexible model capable of balancing, integrating, and assimilating all existing and any future initiatives under One Umbrella, including digital interventions. This encompasses the strengths of tried and tested international excellence frameworks with high internalization and contextualization in totality. The individual elements of the framework will enable seamless delivery of business objectives with a strong linkage to robust business processes.
