Operations Management Training Boot Camp

Operations management focuses on carefully managing the processes to produce and distribute products and services.

A great deal of focus is on efficiency and effectiveness of processes. Therefore, operations management often includes substantial measurement and analysis of internal processes.

There are strong parallels between the skills required for effective operations management and those needed in both logistics and supply chain management. Excellent organizational ability is crucial in successfully enhancing efficiency and driving productivity as an operations manager.

An operations manager must be able to understand the series of processes within a company to get them to flow seamlessly, and in this sense the role is directly related to supply chain management.

Additionally, the coordination involved in setting up these processes in practice represents logistics; the combination of understanding and coordinating the work of a company are central to becoming a successful operations manager.

Most experts in this area agree that good operations management is the cornerstone of a successful business. The reason: You can make the best product in the world, but if you can’t get it to your customers, your business is going to be hurting.

Scale, of course, is all important.

Simply creating something wonderful is just the start. Success lies in the ability to take a single good idea or much-loved product and:

  • Develop a supply chain
  • Produce it in large quantities
  • Distribute it widely
  • Measure customer satisfaction
  • Adjust product offerings accordingly

When it comes to operations management, no matter what you’re trying to optimize for, you need to be able to impact as many variables at once.

These are the cogs in the machine. By influencing how they interact and operate, we achieve some of the optimizations we’ll discuss later.

Operations management is often described in terms of two terms:

  • Logistics
  • Supply chain management

With logistics the careful and considered use of resources, as well as cost-effectiveness, has become increasingly important in an era in which resources can often be in short supply and customer expectations have skyrocketed.

Additionally, understanding global trends in supply chain management in order to meet client demand is often critical.
