The world is ‘full’ of operations, some more visible, others less so. In all organisations (private companies, NGOs, and public sector), operations must be managed. Even the units/ departments within these organisations must also manage their operations, whether it is about sales, or even report writing in administration units and finance departments.

For executives, managing operations is inevitable.  If they fail to do so, the operations do not disappear. Largely, the tangible value that a company generates for its customers occurs through its operations management. Managers who neglect operations management are wasting an opportunity to ensure the competitiveness of their companies. Good operations management can be used to contribute to the welfare of society in so many ways. This programme is designed to equip the participants with the skills and competencies required to plan, allocate resources, and execute the operations activities of a company most efficiently and effectively.
