This unit enables students to evaluate and analyse the functions and make-up of operations management, the ways in which operations can be optimised, and the key challenges operations managers face in the modern economy. Digital operations and project management aims to ensure that resources are used as efficiently as possible. As organisations face variability and uncertainties, managers need to be able to respond to those challenges with effective processes and structures. Operations management provides another opportunity to foster and deliver unique competitive advantage. This provides another key place for competition in the marketplace.
