MBA Ops Management

This course is designed as a basic introduction to key contemporary concepts in operations management. The focus is on aspects of operations that are strategically significant for a range of organisations, in particular operations strategy, management of technology, management of operational risk and the management of inter-organisational relationships.

The course will be taught through discussion of key texts and cases, supported by visiting speakers.

The course will be assessed by an individual reflection on one of the cases discussed in class and the group production of a wiki describing and discussing a contemporary topic in operations management.
