Operations Management (OM) is a specialized and emerging body of knowledge that facilitates the process of value delivery by improving productivity, quality, cost and supply chain cycle times and providing a broad array of high quality products and services.
Be it the manufacturing, retail or services sectors such as IT, finance, logistics, transportation, health care or public utility or educational, the service delivery pipelines must be carefully designed, resourced and managed effectively and efficiently.The effectiveness of the system is determined by the success with which various subsystems and components interact with each other and with the environment in which the organization operates. At the heart of successful management is the ability to draw upon the resources of many disciplines and integrate relevant principles and background information in order to define and analyze a problem. Once defined, the manager must identify alternative possible solutions, evaluate these in terms of the broader goals and values of the organization, implement the apparently dominant solution, and finally, assess the actual consequences of the solution for the effectiveness of the organization.
