Many organisations have embarked upon operational excellence journeys under the guise of lean and/or six sigma and many organisations have sophisticated performance management processes in place in the form of scorecards, KPIs and dashboards.

What you can gain
This session will explore the challenges facing organisations introducing lean/six sigma, with particular reference to the finance function, and how, if those improvement efforts are not directly linked to the performance management process, it becomes very difficult to validate the business benefits. It will show how the practise of strategy deployment can bridge this gap and ensure that improvement is linked to performance to deliver real value.
