How to Use Tools & Resources:

As you grow your OpEx skills and knowledge, you’ll notice that many of the techniques you’re learning have tools and templates that will help you define and organize your work. It’s important to understand that the value of OpEx in an organization isn’t in memorizing concepts, but in applying these tools and methods regularly to ensure your organization continues to improve over time. Similarly to the Learning page, the Show Me Excellence Community has assembled a variety of resources for you to use as you put your skill sets to use. As you move forward in your OpEx journey, you will also need to expand your professional toolbox to make the most of your enhanced abilities.

Use this page as your one-stop-shop to build the OpEx toolbox for you and your teams as your skills develop and If you are still unsure of which tools you may need, use the search bar at the top of each page to help you filter your search or discover additional, related topics!
