The Operational Excellence Academy brings together Operational Excellence and Continuous Improvement professionals to look at how manufacturers are rethinking and developing strategies for sustainable competitive advantage.
Key issues facing manufacturing businesses now are: 

- Changing customer demands requiring more agile operations 
- Increasing competitive pressure in the EU post-Brexit 
- How to apply operational excellence to new technology and systems 
- Opportunity presented by new technologies in operational excellence applications 
- Increasing competitive pressure from challenger companies and new business models 
- Scaling operational excellence initiatives to an organisation-wide level  
- Attaining buy-in and support from all leadership 
- Leveraging a millennial and increasingly digital-native workforce
 Efficiency. Effectiveness. Execution.
Identify and map value streams, cut inefficiency and build a self-sustaining commitment to world class manufacturing within your team.
