Continuous Improvement Drives Innovation in Oil & Gas
2019 Global Petroleum Show
At this year’s 51st annual Global Petroleum Show, Kaizen Institute North America took part in the event as an exhibitor. Esteemed as North America’s leading energy event, the Global Petroleum Show gathers government officials, corporate executives, innovators, and decision makers from over 100 countries to engage in discussions shaping the future of the energy industry. The event offered a platform for Kaizen Institute to share our knowledge of Continuous Improvement strategies and initiatives - helping many industry leaders gain a competitive advantage by reducing Lead Times and operating costs.
New this year to the Global Petroleum Show was a separate three-day strategic and technical conference discussing three themes: transitioning toward the future, future-proofing the business model, and focusing on Canada as the world’s most responsible producer. The conference kicked off day one with a speech from Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and what was said to be the largest oil and gas rally in Canadian history.
Alberta is open for business
A message brought by many to this year’s event, including Premier Jason Kenney and the Honourable Tanya Fir – Alberta is open for business – is gaining much traction in bringing international investment and innovation from around the globe. With the world’s third largest oil reserves, Alberta boasts investment opportunities like no other – and Kaizen Institute is ready to support businesses rising to the challenge in making Alberta a global investment destination.
In order to achieve dreams of business performance, oil and gas companies must invest in their growth. Companies do this by implementing KAIZEN™ methodologies in their daily business practices. The key to not only remaining economically viable but continuing to thrive in deteriorating market conditions is by focusing on margins, not only production.
