At heart, Operational Excellence is an element of organizational leadership the employs numerous methodologies and tools, focusing on the sustainable improvement of outstanding performance metrics. Alongside this, Corporate culture is the collection of values, visions, missions, and day-to-day aspects of communication and operational goals that create the atmosphere that permeates and determines how employees work in their organization.
According to the Barrett Values Centre, "Vibrant cultures have high levels of performance because they create internal cohesion, attract talented people, and inspire employees to go the extra mile."
