Presentation: "Operational Excellence" with Norman Firchau, Porsche Consulting

No matter what your products are, striving for Operational Excellence along the entire value chain is key to success and leads to competitive advantage. 

Porsche has been tackling Operational Excellence through continuous improvement for more than 20 years. The journey began with manufacturing but did not stop there. The proportion of added–value activities was not increased by boosting performance but by eliminating waste in all direct and indirect processes. Porsche transformed its business from the inside-out. 

Porsche Consulting shares lessons learned from Porsche and has provided companies in a variety of industries with proven methods and tools to achieve Operational Excellence.

The approach is to improve the performance of all processes, not only increasing delivery service and quality but also reducing cost and complexity. Simple and fast procedures support clients successfully on their path to becoming a lean and flexible company that outperforms itself.
