Setting the High Bar for Business Excellence – Oliver Wight Announces New ‘Class A Standard Seventh Edition’

Setting the high bar for business excellence – Oliver Wight announces new ‘Class A Standard Seventh Edition’. The new publication sets the high bar for organizations looking to achieve performance excellence, capturing nearly 50 years of experience from Oliver Wight in helping some of the world’s best-known companies improve their businesses.

“The Seventh Edition is the perfect framework for any company, regardless of maturity, to start an improvement journey,” says Jon Minerich, Chairman of Oliver Wight Americas and Oliver Wight International. “We’ve launched the new edition focusing on how companies can achieve sustainable business results – not just creating better processes, but increasing revenue and improving margin; it’s about delivering shareholder satisfaction and excellent customer service, reducing costs, and attracting the best talent.”

From its humble beginnings as a 20-question checklist in 1977, The Oliver Wight Class A Standard – Seventh Edition has changed, significantly. Its nine chapters and content have been completely updated, reflecting the continuously changing environment that we live in. It covers the very latest in Integrated Business Planning, product and service development, demand and supply, and much more.

Taking into account everything that has happened in, arguably, the most volatile and rapidly changing era and the increasing demands of twenty-first-century customers and consumers, The Oliver Wight Class A Standard – Seventh Edition is a must-have for businesses in order for them to stay ahead of their competitors, both now and in the future.

“Businesses should realize that the Seventh Edition Standard is just one element in reaching their business objectives,” explains Minerich. “Learning from real-world experience and having guidance from a consultant will also ensure a business’s functions are fully aligned and integrated across the organization. This support will ultimately inspire change and create a culture of continuous improvement.”
