This course examines how an organisation’s structures, systems and processes contribute to its competitive position.

Establishing sustainable and scalable systems as well as improving performance cross-functionally and across the value chain is an important focus. Topics include operations strategy, designing and setting up operating systems, service delivery systems design, process choice, quality management, time and productivity, aligning operations to markets, and the impact of technology developments on the service delivery system. Students will be able to effectively establish and manage an operating system and will have a greater appreciation of the need to manage integrated processes across the value chain to achieve business success.
