Operations Management

Operations management is a truly cross-functional and global process. Managing operations involves managing product flows, financial flows, information flows, and human resources across the value chain. As such, operations management is the core engine of any company, focused on creating and delivering value, and interfaces with marketing, finance, technology, human resources, and procurement.

More than a function, Operations Management is a way of thinking. Operations are geared towards process improvement, in order to make customers happier with their service or product at lower cost, greater quality and in less time. Operations thinking along the value chain help getting beyond functional silos and increase the size of the pie. Properly managing operations offer opportunities to invest in the most important parts of an organization, reducing waste and making businesses more sustainable in every sense of the word.
