10:20 AM REGIONAL KEYNOTE PANEL: Mitigating The Risks Involved With Business Transformation

An executive survey this year found that businesses globally have collectively spent over $2 trillion in 2019 on digital capabilities with the aim of achieving OPEX, while 40% of survey takers confirmed they saw a direct boost in their operational efficiencies by going digital. Looking beyond the staggering expenditure, it is also important to note the non-monetary effects of a failing OPEX programme and the ways we can mitigate these.

  • Identifying open risks at the planning stage and preparing mitigation in advance
  • Defining ownership across the business to navigate gaps and reduce operational complexities
  • Implementing key controls and checks to facilitate smooth implementations

2:20 PM EXPERT PANEL: Facets Of Achieving Operational Excellence

Along with a rock-solid strategy, OPEX has always depended heavily on ‘Execution Excellence’. From strategy deployment, performance management, and continuous improvement to organisation excellence, leadership, and culture – the role of OPEX goes far beyond smooth administration. Leading industry experts have repeatedly stated that the only successful OPEX strategy is the one that covers multiple aspects of a business and not just operations.

Have you considered if the below responsibilities belong to your OPEX leader?
  • How does an OPEX leader drive data excellence?
  • Risk Management: What are the best means to incorporate risk functions in your OPEX programme?
  • Can data mining and process mining align?
  • The role of an OPEX leader in moving from cost optimisation to value generation
