What is Operational Excellence (OpEx)?

Operational Excellence drives the "management cycle" with skills, capabilities, mindsets, and processes to deliver performance and organizational health and continuously improves our departments

If there are any questions or suggestions regarding DMH Operational Excellence, please contact us at: DMHOpEx@dmh.mo.gov.
