COE is a business consortium founded more than 25 years ago that connects organizations of all industries on their journeys to build and sustain a culture of problem solving and continuous improvement.
We work alongside our members to foster a problem-solving culture that’s grounded in tried-and-true operational excellence tools, and that’s constant and far-reaching. We’re here to help you drive changes in behavior—so that operational excellence becomes a goal in every process, start to finish. Through membership, organizations gather actionable insights from industry executives at COE programming, tap into research findings focused on today’s greatest challenges, and connect with Fisher College of Business students poised to become tomorrow’s leaders. By learning from each other and accessing the resources Ohio State has to offer, member companies have the constant support needed to chart a path to excellence that builds resilience and adaptability in a rapidly changing world.
