Implementing operational excellence so that the enterprise benefits is an important issue that needs close examination. An operational excellence strategy model implementation should result in a business management system that encourages process improvement so that the organization’s key performance indicators (KPIs) benefit. In order to accomplish this successfully we must have the appropriate skills available to the organization.

Operational Excellence stresses usage of methods and tools that result in the sustainable improvement of key performance metrics (KPIs). Wikipedia notes that much of the operational excellence management philosophy is based on continuous improvement methodologies; e.g., Business Process Management (BPM),Six Sigma, Lean, Lean Six Sigma (LSS) and project management. In order to be successful, organizations need practitioners with skills in BPM, Six Sigma, and LSS.

The thought leaders at BPMInsitute.Org have developed two programs to help develop those skills. We have developed two certificate programs: 

  1. OpEx Professional Certificate (for LSS Blackbelts and Greenbelts)
  2. OpEx Associate Certificate (for BPM professionals)

Each program is tailored to the enhance skills of the two different groups.

The OpEx Professional Certificate is intended for skilled process improvement professionals to who are ready to take your organization’s improvement program to the next level, or to potentially lead an OpEx program.

The course structure will enhance your understanding of the various skills, tool and methods required to lead an Operational Excellence initiative. We will help to combine your understanding of BPM, with your knowledge of Six Sigma, and Lean to lead improvement your organization’s performance. This program will help enhance your skills to be prepared for the next wave of process improvement.

OpEx Associate Certificate was specifically developed for BPM practitioners who have not had the benefit of advanced process improvement training like LSS Green and Black Belts.
