Introduction

Many improvement initiatives fail due to a fragmented approach to the alignment and execution of practitioner activities. Operational Excellence (OPEX) supports the drive for sustainable profitability and growth within your organisation by adopting a holistic approach to improvement.   

Studies within the Oil and Gas Industry have reported that world class operators enjoy a range of benefits including higher facility reliability, lower maintenance costs, reduced safety incidents and an increase in utilisation of staff on value adding activities.

This GLOMACS Operational Excellence training course in the Oil & Gas Industry will equip you with the knowledge, skills and behavioural competencies required to support an Operational Excellence programme and contribute significantly to the bottom line of your organisation, reducing variation, defects, cycle times, lead times, waste and costs within your operations.

This GLOMACS training course will cover:

  • Reasons why improvement initiatives can fail
