Operational excellence is a watchword for Walmart, and it's a key concept for successful Walmart and suppliers and other retailers, as well. Operational excellence goes beyond operational efficiency to reach a place in which people, processes, and technology are aligned throughout your organization. 8th & Walton knows what it takes to achieve operational excellence, and our courses in this category will inspire and energize you.
Retailers and suppliers strive to achieve operational excellence to meet mission-critical goals:
- Respond efficiently to changing market conditions.
- Deliver maximum value to the end consumer.
- Control costs and maximize profitability.
Pursuing operational excellence requires discipline to align and manage people, process, and technology throughout the value chain. It requires a balance of long term strategy with short term management execution. Operational excellence also requires know-how, and our experts can deliver that to you in face to face courses, or online in the comfort of your home or office.
A strategy without execution is the same as never having a strategy; execution without a strategy often leads to undesirable results. Organizations must have both strategy and execution to achieve meaningful results and maintain operational excellence over the long term.
8th & Walton has joined with Lightship Partners to create a full slate of operational excellence workshops that introduce best practices and methodologies to help managers develop strategies to achieve operational excellence and manage the daily execution needed to deliver meaningful results.
