Why Operational Excellence & Process Transformation Week Europe?
In today’s competitive, quickly evolving business environment, there is more pressure than ever on operational excellence teams to foster a competitive edge through digital transformation and customer centric processes.
Companies are hitting the limits of traditional OpEx tools. How can improvement professionals adapt to this new landscape, leveraging technology and end-to-end engagement, to create the effortless experience that today’s consumer expects?
And once your changes are embedded, how can you make them stick as staff move on and the business strategy changes?
One thing is clear: transformation professionals now have the opportunity to take the reins of strategic programmes, putting themselves at the heart of the business’s future. But how?
In response to this challenge, the PEX Network, with its 130,000+ global members, is presenting OPEX Week Europe 2017 to help you to harness the potential of digital and market changes, and to create the sustainable transformation your business demands.
