About the Organisers

1. Symbios Consulting

Symbios Consulting Group is a global company and a pioneer company in Egypt working in Lean deployment, 20 Keys and 6 Sigma training and Consultations. 

With a solid track record over the last decade, Sybmios Consulting has partnered with a number of global organisations as Global Operational Excellence Society, 20 Keys and ODI with an objective to promote best international practices in Quality Assurance and improving business environment and productivity. 

Practical Approach and Real Hands on Experience are two fundamental keys in Symbios trainings and consultations as well as its annual conferences. 

2. 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.

Members of the Operational Excellence Society — from seasoned practitioners to the newly curious — are united by an interest in sustainable and deliberate improvement and the enhancement of overall quality and value throughout the value chain during the pursuit of perfection.

To that end, we have established a certification program — a foundational system for creating a corporate culture where Operational Excellence is the norm: The Operational Excellence Enterprise Readiness System.

The Operational Excellence Society is a platform designed for executives and practitioner in the disciplines of Business Process Improvement (BPI), Continuous Improvement (CI) and Lean Six Sigma.

The society was inspired, in part, by the Lean value known as  gemba, or walking the process in real life. The society supports regional collegiate collaboration, the exchange of best-practices, shared experiences, and face-to-face mind-share. Our members network and collaborate at meetings in the United States, South America, the United Kingdom, Europe and the Middle East.

20 Keys 

Prof. Iwao Kobayashi did extensive research on, and personally experienced, the rise to world class of numerous Japanese companies. During this research he discovered 20 critical focus areas for a company ’s sustainable and holistic development. These 20 focus areas became the 20 Keys ®.  

The 20 Keys ® is, literally, the Road Map to World Class.

Our international network of associates

Over the past two decades, the 20 Keys® programme has been implemented throughout the world. Contact your nearest consulting partner by clicking on your country below.
