Our expert faculty members, who have taught hundreds of Fortune 500 companies in all industries, including consumer products, healthcare, insurance, fabrication, energy, and aviation, offer live and online training, books, innovative products, and other resources that can be applied in any area of any size business. From common concepts to advanced techniques, the Institute is the singular academic source for companies on the journey to Operational Excellence.
The Operational Excellence Society is a grass-roots organization that emerged from a large LinkedIn group led by Joe Paris. The society is staffed by volunteers and has no dues or membership fees.
As the name implies, the society is dedicated to change agents who embrace the ideals of Operational Excellence, defined as the continuous and deliberate improvement of company performance AND the circumstances of those who work there — to pursue Operational Excellence by design and not by coincidence.
