Carlo D. Walker ★★★★★

This book can be used during seminars. This is a good reinforcement so the in-charge will continue to aim high-quality results.


Whether it is tangible or intangible production items the "Operations Management" book will guide you through concepts such as Supply Chain Management to LEAN, and much more. Surely all organizations will have to deal with these concepts sooner or later.


Operations Management is about how organisations produce or deliver the goods and services that provide the reason for their existence. Operations can be seen as one of many functions (e.g. marketing, finance, personnel) within the organisation. The operations function can be described as that part of the organisation devoted to the production or delivery of goods and services. This means all organisations undertake operations activities because every organisation produces goods and/or services.
