OPEX WEEK LIVE 2019

3 - 5 Dec 2019| Free Online Event

The leading global online event for the operational excellence
and business transformation community

Much like the world around them, business transformation professionals are facing a period of immense change. The tools of the previous decade, such as business improvement, lean and six sigma, are no longer enough to ensure that their organizations will thrive in the era of disruption.
Instead, technology is playing an increasingly important role for the PEX professionals, with the focus now on marrying the potential of technology with the needs of the human workforce to drive greater agility.

    With that in mind, this OPEX WEEK LIVE 2019 will cover the following

    Leveraging RPA and Intelligent Automation to free your staff to focus on more strategic initiatives

    Understanding the real processes within your business through Process Mining, and how you can increase their efficiency 

    Creating an Enterprise Architecture that supports the agility of your organization

    Ensuring the success of our business transformation initiatives through effective Culture Change

    Day 1 - December 3, 2019

    14:00 - 14:40 PM BST | 09:00 - 09:40 AM ET -  Ensuring processes, transformation initiatives maintain pace with sustainable growth

    Whether your organization is facing significant financial or operational challenges, or looking to drive a big step up in performance, a coalition of change agents and leaders, if restricted to your Operational Excellence and Process or transformational professionals community, is likely to turn out unable to move that needle fast enough or far enough. We’ve all heard that roughly only one third of transformations deliver the intended benefits, the most constant and depressing stat in our field!

    Key takeaways:
    • Start with strategic intent and connect it to operations to improve customer interactions and experience
    • Effectively work with business units to hit the right combination between solving problems and measuring performance in OPEX interventions
    • Move from mechanical process design to business outcome driven alignment of ways of working, mindset and competencies
    • So, are Waterfall and Lean Six Sigma over and done with?
      Speaker: Anne-Sophie Andre, Head of Global Process Architecture, BP

          17:00 - 17:40 BST | 12:00 - 12:40 PM ET -  The Business Process Engine: driving process excellence at UC Berkeley

          Like any other large educational institution, University of California, Berkeley struggled with process management and documentation.  Unwieldy process maps written in Visio took a lot of time to produce, lived on hard drives, and weren’t useful to the staff involved in those processes.  Maps quickly became outdated and consistency in processes was lost. There was a need to get something useful and accessible for frontline staff and customers. UC Berkeley combined a cloud-based process mapping and collaboration tool, Nintex Promapp, and an overall process management approach to change this. After a successful rollout they are now expanding to other departments and UC Campuses.

          Key takeaways:
          • The importance of structure for around successful process management
          • Lessons learned from BPM rollout
          • Aligning strategy with the choice of tools, to support successful project outcomes

          Speakers:
          Nick Endsley, Sr. Business Process Analyst at UC Berkeley
          Chris DeMarco, Sr. Business Process Analyst at UC Berkeley
