Driving Transformation at Global Petrochemical Firm: Part 2

Published: 2020

dss+ partnered with a top 5 global petrochemical company on a transformation project at corporate and subsidiary levels to drive risk reduction, sustainable performance improvement, and ensure safe and reliable production across its business portfolio.

In part 1, dss+ summarized the experience from this global HSE transformation project aimed at ensuring that the client was focused on the right priorities and risks at the corporate and subsidiary company asset/site level.

In part 2, dss+ focused on driving transformation by focusing on risk reduction, strengthening safety culture, and embedding a sustainable operating rhythm. Sustainable risk reduction and operational performance improvement are two sides of the same coin. A cultural transformation and operational performance improvement program is a “marathon” and not a “sprint”, and needs to be resilient during organisational changes. Transformation and pace of change need to take into account risks, maturity of the organisation, capabilities, and constraints.
