Important information: #OPERA 2030 event postponed until 23.09.2020

How can we prepare for a future that we can hardly describe, let alone reliably plan? We believe that the only way is to be fast, flexible and elastic in order to follow the erratic, fractured and increasingly unplannable trajectories of the global economy. That’s why we developed #OPERA 2030 the new paradigm for adapting operations to an uncertain future. The global impact of the COVID-19 outbreak once again shows how these principles are not only true in Operations, but in all areas of life. Due to this black swan incident, we need to show flexibility and postpone the #OPERA 2030 event as your and our employees' health and well-being are top priority. The event was fully booked, offering outstanding networking opportunities and top-notch speakers eager to present big ideas – that’s why we have already set a new date. Please join us for our exclusive invitation-only #OPERA 2030 event which will now be held on September 23, 2020, in Paris.

The future of value creation in a volatile world

How can we prepare for a future that we cannot plan reliably? We believe that the only way is to be fast, flexible and elastic in order to follow the irregular, broken and increasingly unpredictable paths of the global economy. But how should businesses that struggle with structures, rules and systems built up over decades achieve this agility? How can they make their complex interfaces and globally networked value creation networks flexible again? How can we become agile without losing momentum? These questions primarily concern operational processes - both internally and in global supply networks.

On September 23rd Roland Berger will hold a pan-European #OPERA2030 event for top executives in operations functions. The event brings together C-level executives and top decision makers from across Europe.

On the agenda are insightful, case-based talks with industry leaders for each of the major operations functions as well as top-notch speakers who will provide insights from their respective areas of expertise. Highlight speakers will be announced shortly.

O-pen up operations

It's time to open up your operations. Integration platforms and building platforms offer new ways of working. Value chains are being deconstructed and production franchised. Shared operations are the name of the game.

P-erfect the value chain

Perfect your supply chains, cutting out dead wood and thinning overgrown areas. Shorten your supply chains to reflect the increasingly local requirements. Make your supply chains broader by sharing operations, even with competitors - "co-opetition".

E-mbrace digital

We are entering an age of "mirror worlds" representations of the real world in digital form. Virtual Reality 4.0. has arrived. You can now not only test products virtually, you can even simulate their future fields of application. Everything is connected, and being connected is everything.

R-eorchestrate value generation

Globalization was yesterday, it's time to make supply local again. Resources are scarce and you must adapt your use of them to their availability. Protectionism is back in fashion, driven by market and regulatory change.

A-ccelerate the learning game

Speed up your learning game in the area of product development. It's all about data: data driven learning is replacing expert know-how, and data is forming the basis fpr production partnerships. Today's requirement profiles can be more detailed than was ever imaginable in the past.

OPERA is the guiding principle developed for a robust and future-proof operation that helps companies to remain adaptable (flexible, agile and resilient). OPERA offers five key perspectives on operational processes and the strategic framework to move safely on uncertain ground.

Other program highlights include a state-of-the-art technology exhibition of leading service providers, like IntegrityNext, Goodpatch and Vizibl, panel discussions and networking in an exclusive circle of operations executives.
