Operational Excellence (OpEx) is the standard work of continuous improvement. It’s the system inside the enterprise that enables it to perform at its peak potential. The best OpEx environments don’t require a crisis to initiate change and are built to allow improvement to happen naturally.
Formally, OpEx can be thought of as getting the organization involved in preventing and solving problems. Many businesses find it difficult to strike the right balance, however, and struggle with several issues. The most vital aspects of OpEx are aligning the organization toward common improvement goals and making the work relevant for all participants.
