Transformation by its very nature is fraught with complexities, growing pains and potential pitfalls. Organizations have their own unique ways when it comes to strategy, people, process and technology. As we begin to see the dust settle from the Covid-19 pandemic, now more than ever businesses have to move from re-strategizing the ways in which they work, to operating on a whole new ecosystem.

The difficulty is that there is no rulebook to prescribe a one-stop solution for executing operational excellence. From financial services, to retail and manufacturing, to disruptive technology, many of the enterprises that have re-written the rulebook of true operational excellence have been steered by some of the greatest minds at the bleeding edge of innovation - challenging traditional ways of working and achieving truly astounding results.

The 2021 event will bring together these leaders who continue to connect, share strategies, engage in unfiltered discussions, and drive business forward during unprecedented disruption, focusing on how to push business agility to its limits and better apply impactful OPEX tools
