Achieving operational excellence is more important now that than it has ever been before due to a highly complex, changing business environment. With increasing complexity in all areas of the business, including compliance, operational excellence is becoming more of a challenge.
The first step to operational excellence is defining it in a clear and concise manner that provides measurable objectives – you cannot manage what is not measured.
Second is recognizing that excellence is relative and shifts over time – technology and business paradigms all evolve. Companies do not stand to benefit from antiquated and traditional methods that no longer serve their needs effectively.
The third is the understanding that true operational excellence manifests itself through integrated performance across risk, revenue and cost. Seeing the interconnectedness of these often siloed functions will set the company on track to operational excellence.
Simply put, achieving excellence means having a sound risk management strategy that aligns its operational capabilities and executes strategy consistently and reliably.
An operational excellent organization has the significantly lower operational risk, lower operating costs and increased margins relative to its competitors, which creates value for customers and stakeholders. Also, operational excellence allows oil and gas leaders to confidently say and prove that they are running their assets safely, reliably, sustainably and cost effectively.
