10:45 AM Workshop E: Critical Success factors in Operations Management System design and implementation: Why, How, and What?

Many companies have implemented management systems to improve conformance and execution in order to achieve a better state of performance in the pursuit of Operational Excellence. Companies like Andeavor, Marathon Petroleum, Chevron, Exxon and Koch have had tremendous success with their management systems. However, many other companies have found their management systems bureaucratic, costly, complex, and ineffective. This session will highlight the critical success factors in Operational Excellence Management System (OEMS) design and implementation.
• Why dynamic, constantly evolving, and combined Operational Excellence Management Systems are needed more than ever
• How to define the “Size of the Prize” and deliver value through implementation of OEMS
• Use of Lean Principles, Plan-Do-Check-Adjust, and the Six Sigma Methodology to build new and improve existing OEMS
• Why Operational Discipline (OD) system is needed to execute the Operational Excellence Management System
• Bring OEMS to Life with Leadership to Life (L2L) – Sustain it with Operational Discipline (OD), Human Factors, and Behavioral Science
• Executive Stewardship, Operational Leadership, and Tactical Ownership

Enabling and delivering Operational Excellence through Operational Discipline
Many companies have implemented formal management systems in an attempt to improve execution
and achieve Operational Excellence. While a few companies have had tremendous success with their
management systems, many other companies have found their management system has become
bureaucratic, costly, and ineffective. Even worse, they have found their management systems added
more layers of complexity that further weigh upon the companies’ performance. Grigor Bambekov is
Andeavor Logstics’ Director Performance & Business Excellence. In this enlightening case study Grigor
will share the company’s journey to operational excellence, including how they are:
• Driving OEMS implementation through Operational Discipline: Why its not just about compliance
• Building the most compelling case for deeper OEMS commitment by cascading discipline
• Getting leadership to focus on and support your Management System and Operational Discipline System
