Evolve Partners is pleased to co-sponsor the 2011 Energy Process Excellence Network, November 15-16 in Houston, TX.
This conference is a great opportunity for energy industry practitioners of Process Excellence, Operations Excellence, Lean, Six Sigma and Continuous Improvement to get together to share experience and best practices. Last year’s inaugural event was a great success, with about 100 practitioners participating. This year’s event is shaping up to be an even better event with a cross section of people from upstream, downstream and utilities participating. This is a unique opportunity to network with your peers and gain perspective on how other similar companies and related industry segments are building capability to drive improvement programs.
Evolve continues to expand its practice of helping producers in shale gas plays to assure delivery of development programs and manage transition to steady-state operations. Supporting clients in such fields as Eagle Ford, Marcellus, and Haynesville, Evolve is helping clients to develop a deep understanding of end-to-end venture development and well delivery, improve integrated planning and cross-functional coordination, and achieve a Lean manufacturing continuous improvement mindset throughout their operations.
Leadership commitment is overwhelmingly the top critical success factor for process excellence in the energy industry, according to a survey released by Evolve Partners. Speaking at the opening session of the ENERGY PROCESS EXCELLENCE NETWORK CONFERENCE on December 7, 2010, in Houston, Seth Tyler of Evolve Partners said, ”What respondents are clearly telling us is that senior leaders must be active sponsors and promoters of process excellence for it to be successful”.
This event will bring together leading senior practitioners of operations excellence and Lean Six Sigma in the energy industry to share best practices and perspectives on process excellence implementation. Seth Tyler and John Norcross of Evolve are scheduled to chair a session at the event. For more information, please go to conference site.
