[REPORT] Operations Management Systems: Stripping Out The Complexity

As operations become more complex it is evermore important that companies are planning, executing and operating with greater reliability.

The need to have clearly defined roles, apportioned accountability and expectations for how the company is to be managed become increasingly vital. The further away that senior leadership separates from day-to-day operations the more the onus for communication of core objectives is heightened.

This is where the Operational Management System (OMS) is supposed to come in to play, suturing and marrying together the collection of processes, expectations and requirements for the successful and holistic management of a business.

In this analysis piece, we speak with Chris Seifert, Partner - Operational Excellence Practice at Wilson Perumal & Company and Mark Little, VP Business Excellence at Cenovus Energy, about the design, implementation and minimising the density of these all-encompassing frameworks.
