One of the greatest challenges faced by any process improvement initiative is ensuring that it directly helps you achieve your overall business goals and objectives. In all companies, strategic objectives need translating into 100s if not 1,000s of goals at operational level. But how do you ensure that your execution is aligned with those strategies and more importantly how do you ensure that improvement initiatives remain on top of the executive agenda?

Featuring examples drawn from leading global organizations in both the public and private sector, Paul Docherty, CEO of i-nexus and the recognized expert in the emerging discipline of Business Execution, will outline the specific actions that Operational Excellence deployment leaders can personally take in the next 90 days to multiply, by an order of magnitude, the level of improvement activity in their organizations and directly link business goals with process excellence initiatives.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How leading organizations are harnessing the closed-loop business execution cycle to align Lean Six Sigma initiatives with business objectives and to ensure management at all levels are engaged and motivated to drive execution of improvement actions.
  • The immediate steps you can take to create a clear line-of-sight between business goals and operational excellence projects
  • Practical ways to establish regular ‘execution’ focused business reviews that ensure improvement initiatives remain a key focus for senior executives.
