Book Description

Even if operations aren't directly responsible for keeping the world running, they certainly help!
If you want to have an accurate understanding of how a company functions, you need to get your hands dirty. Only in this way can you get an accurate understanding of what is actually taking place within a company. The practice of looking inward for the answers is at the core of what is known as Operations Management.
Benefit from the wealth of experience that world-renowned experts Nigel Slack, Alistair Brandon-Jones, and Nicola Burgess bring to the table when it comes to assisting businesses of all shapes and sizes in becoming more successful. The book takes a strategic stance and provides readers with an all-encompassing and actionable method to investigate fundamental ideas and observe how those ideas are implemented through a plethora of examples from around the world.
