Operational excellence is about identifying which actions in your business operations really contribute to what customers pay for. These are your real ‘value-add’ activities. Everything else needs to be streamlined to maximize profitability and shareholder value.
Being excellent in operations and being lean means everyone in your organization constantly looks for ways to rationalize all aspects of operations. It includes things like manufacturing for quality and just-in-time inventory management. But it also covers the responsiveness of your entire operations, achieving organizational and operational excellence, improving the quality of your products and / or services and enhancing overall customer satisfaction.
