The overall aim of this course is to provide delegates with insights into the role of an operations manager, allow delegates to explore key aspects of operations management and help them improve their impact as an operations manager.
Operations Managers have a number of responsibilities, for example:
- Aligning the operation's strategy to the company strategy - developing a clear vision of how the operations should support the company's long-term objectives; it also means translating goals into implications for performance objectives in terms of quality, speed, dependability, flexibility and cost.
- Deploying the operations strategy - operations management is often characterised by the need to make decisions both frequently and quickly, so it is necessary to have a framework to guide decision making; that is the role of operations strategy.
- Designing the company's services and processes - in the service sector the product is often a process, the design of which, often, falls into the domain of operations management. In manufacturing sectors processes are designed to prepare a product for market.
- Planning & controlling the operation - is the activity of deciding what the operation's resources should be doing, then making sure they do it and as efficiently as possible.
- Improving the performance of operations - continuous improvement is the responsibility of all operations managers with a focus on improving quality and reducing costs.
By the end of the programme delegates will be able to:
1. Explain the purpose of operations management and how to align operations management strategies with the organisation's strategy (Operational Excellence)
2. Outline the approach for aligning the operation to meet the needs and expectations of the customer both internal and external (Service Excellence)
3. Demonstrate an ability to use a number of tools and techniques to improve the performance of key business processes (Process Excellence)
4. Describe a number of approaches to improve the effectiveness of the human resource (Performance Excellence)
5. Outline alternative organisational structures to deliver improved customer service while delivering greater efficiencies (Organisational Excellence)
It is our intention to give you an opportunity to understand the nature and best practice of operations management. To do so we will present you with a range of learning experiences including presentations, case studies, exercises and simulations.
