Nov. 15, 2011 - PRLog -- The inaugural meetings of the “Operational Excellence Society”, hosted by XONITEK Consulting Group Int’l , took place on November 8th in Warsaw,  Poland and on November 10th in Munich, Germany.  Altogether, almost 100 people gathered for an afternoon of exchanging OpEx ideas and networking that went well into the night.  The idea of an Operational Excellence Society was well received by the local communities of practitioners and consultants.

The meetings will continue in Warsaw and Munich on a monthly basis – and in various cities across Europe, USA and Midle East depending on the interest of local communities to share information, experience & knowledge. The next inaugural OpEx Society meeting will take place in New York on November 29th.

Operational Excellence is about increasing company performance – and the circumstances of those who work there – by teaching Leadership Skills, creating an environment where true transformational change can thrive, and leveraging the disciplines of Lean Six-Sigma.  

The Operational Excellence Society is dedicated to people – whether the seasoned practitioner or the newly curious – who are interested in Sustainable and Deliberate Improvement and to enhance overall Quality and Value throughout the Value-Chain during the Pursuit of Perfection.

The members of the Operational Excellence LinkedIn Group ( ) are dedicated to realizing these goals.  With over 15,000 members and growing rapidly; the Operational Excellence Group is one of the largest groups on LinkedIn.

Whilst the benefits of social media are obvious – the ability to bring like-minded people from around the world together to collaborate and share their life experiences – there is a limit to what can truly be shared.  Just as Lean speaks to the value of “gemba”, or walking the process in real-life; so there is a benefit, desire, and benefit to taking our relationships in social media and “making it real”.

This is why we have created a sub-group of Operational Excellence on Linked-In entitled the Operational Excellence Society.  This subgroup is dedicated to supporting regional collegiate collaboration, the exchange of best-practices and experience, and generally face-to-face mind-share.  Whether you are a practitioner, in academia, a consultant, or an individual who is interested – all are welcome to join and participate.

To make the Operational Excellence Society valuable, accessible, and enjoyable; each networking workshop will start with opening remarks from the Chapter President and immediately followed by a presentation from a guest speaker on a subject that is relevant to the mission of the group – followed by a traditional business networking mixer.
•   Learn and share what Operational Excellence is really about
•   Find out about the latest & most effective improvement methodologies and tools
•   Give something & take something
•   Get inspiration and help
•   Spend time among people who are continually improving for the benefit of their companies and themselves

Membership is free of charge with the only costs that might be incurred by attending the meetings being for food and drinks which you may order at the venue (but not obliged).  

The organizational meetings will take place in early December with regular monthly meetings of the Chapters beginning in January.  If you’re interested in joining the Operational Excellence Society Warsaw Chapter please send an e-mail to Małgorzata Krukowska ( ; and for the Munich Chapter please contact Martin Haack at:
