In our rapidly changing world, understanding and being able to predict and respond to potential futures is the key to successful operations of any organisation.

At the Operational Excellence Conference 2020 on 1 October 2020, we will be discussing the latest trends that will impact your organisation’s operations. Drawing on successful business cases, we will outline the relevant factors for creating an operational setup that will stand the test of time.

Get key insights, ideas and tools to implement in your own organisation

Leading OPEX experts from international brands such as Maersk, Dow Chemical and Ikea will guide us through the latest trends influencing operational excellence.

The focus of the day will be:
  • Transformational excellence: We will get insights into how Maersk Line transformed their operations execution to become fit for the future while also achieving substantial cost savings. The aim is to address how to ensure that large operational transformations remain future-proof.
  • Sustainability: We all know that sustainability is the way forward. But how do you get started with concrete climate actions and how can you drive the adoption of sustainable business practices across the entire organisation? IKEA will share how they work towards becoming climate positive by 2030 and what you can do today to start reducing emissions in your supply chain.
  • Digitalisation: Preparing for the future is a digital journey that comes with the responsibility to find the right balance between new technological developments and people. Dow Chemical will talk about the importance of the human factor and discuss the required mix of having both people, data and AI available in future-proof operations.

Keynote speaker: Tim Harford

Best-selling author and Financial Times columnist Tim Harford will take centre stage to discuss the art of adapting to change in organisations, how the potential of new technology can be misunderstood and to predict future developments that your organisation can come to face.

As an author of several economics books, including Messy: The Power of Disorder to Transform Our Lives and The Undercover Economist, and presenter of BBC Radio 4’s More or Less, Tim tells fascinating stories of inventions, ideas and innovations that have helped create the economic world.
