Critical Operational Excellence Challenges - Research Report 2018/19

The challenges within Operational Excellence remain squarely around changing & improving the company culture with over 53.1% citing it as a critical challenge.

A successful change management program with cultural transformation at its heart, will in turn drive more sustainable Operational Excellence Projects, a critical challenge for 35.58% of respondents, and help drive an end-to-end Business Transformation program, a critical challenge for 30.7% of respondents, which will in turn drive a willingness to embrace new technologies and digital enablers, a critical challenge for 28.5% of respondents.

However, without leadership understanding and buy-in, a critical challenge for 23.18% of respondents, you can never achieve a successful change management and cultural transformation program. Hence, leadership understanding and buy-in has to come first.

Clearly, from the above, you can see the top 5 critical challenges are all interlinked, and having leadership buy-in, and developing a successful cultural transformation program will resolve a number of the other challenges identified in this report.
