Course description

This operational management training course begins with the definition of operational management and goes on to describe how operational management is a multi-disciplinary field that focuses on an organisation's operations in order to produce a quality product or service and that the successful interaction of teams is essential to a successful business.

The operational risk management training course course briefly describes ten management theories which underpin successful operational management and then reviews each one in more detail. These include: The Principles of Lean, Six Sigma, Systems theory and many more.

The responsibilities and key functions of operational management are discussed as a multi-disciplinary function covering HR, assets and costs.

We review the skills of an operational manager, focusing on the six most important ones and the important role of decision making. A framework for operational management is suggested for consideration and three different types of planning are described.

Finally, we review evaluating business performance and the role of policies, procedures and processes.
