Operational Excellence Training Course

Consultant/Trainer: Han Gesink

The Petrogenium. Operational Excellence course is a high intensity workshop for members of the leadership of a refinery or petrochemical plant who are aiming for better performance and control within their operations. Both with respect to Safety, Health
and Environment as and Production performance. Since the workshop aims at jointly developing a view on what Operational Excellence can potentially bring to the company, participants should be in the position to develop a follow up to the workshop. Operational Excellence is all about competent people, working together in teams with an ‘enterprise first’ mind-set in a structured way with truly committed leadership.


Although many Petrogenium courses can be tailored for awareness/inexperienced staff, for intermediate and for experienced personnel, this workshop is specifically for leadership and will be customized for a specific refinery, plant or unit. The option for post-course consultancy/help-desk support is also available.

Participants may include: Senior Staff and professionals, members of the site leadership team.
