How to measure operational excellence

Knowing how operational excellence can be measured is essential to your business. Learn how to translate the principles of operational excellence into actionable KPIs you can assess and adjust

For such an important business concept, operational excellence can seem vague. But when the idea originated, creator Shigeo Shingo outlined 10 principles that make up operational excellence. These principles cover everything from management styles to innovation to quality assurance.
