What is a course in operations management? It is a class that is typically offered as part of a professional business certificate or degree program. It focuses on developing strategies to create and improve processes in an organization. Students study how flow rates, bottlenecks and inventory levels affect the final product that is offered to consumers. This course complements additional leadership and managerial classes and narrows the area of focus to a specific career function.

After completing one of these classes, students are able to analyze and improve procedures. They learn techniques for increasing productivity, controlling costs and reducing response times. By making use of case studies, they are able to learn from the successes and failures of other professionals and apply these lessons to their own careers. By the end of the program, they will be able to overcome challenges in production, reduce inefficiencies and make proposals for process improvements to top level managers.

The cost of these classes varies by institution. Those interested should contact their admissions department for more information regarding fees and tuition.

A career as an independent operations consulting analyst is also possible. Some voluntary industry regulatory agencies hire these graduates as process auditors.

Promoting the creativity which will allow organizations to respond to so many challenges is becoming the prime task of Operations Managers who have the arguable task of finding solutions to technological and environmental challenges, the pressures to be socially responsible, the increasing globalisation of markets, and the difficult- to- define areas of knowledge of management. This workshop, therefore, provides a clear, well-structured, and interesting treatment of operations management as it applies to a variety of businesses and organizations. -
