Content

Organisations need to ensure that the operations through which they make and deliver goods and/or services to their customers are not only effective and efficient but also sustainable. It is through their day-to-day operations that organisations create value for their customers and other stakeholders (such as investors and employees).


Through this unit you will develop an understanding of the nature and management of operations in different business contexts, covering both goods-producing and service-providing organisations. You will learn how operations can be planned, developed, measured and controlled to achieve desired outcomes – high-quality goods and services that delight customers – and fulfil the strategic plans of the organisation.
