You will need to access substantial learning resources and experiences in CloudDeakin (Deakin’s online learning environment). Compliance with the Standards in computing, connectivity and student capability are a condition on your enrolment.
In a highly competitive and globalized economy, all 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 fulfill the strategic plans of the organisation. The approach taken in delivery of the unit will ground knowledge in practical application, and emphasis will be placed on experiential learning.
