Due to a high pace of technological developments and higher customer expectations, many organisations need to transform at a 'break-neck pace'. Applying Operational Excellence in all business units allows organisations to keep their competitive edge. However, many organisations experience difficulties in applying end-to-end agile operational innovations that optimize current business.
