Lectiva.com recently added a new course in Operations Strategy!

Thanks to this programme, divided in two levels, you will be able to understand: the meaning of operations strategy and how to judge the performance of operations!

Also, you will have a broad approach to assessing operations performance at a societal level that uses the ‘triple bottom line’ to judge an operation’s social, environmental and economic impact.

In addition, through this course, you will discover how operations performance can be judged in terms of how it affects an organization’s ability to achieve its overall strategy and how performance levels can be reached by focusing on a limited set of objectives and exploiting the trade-offs between objectives.

Some ‘new approaches’ to operations and the extent to which they can be seen as ‘strategic’, as well as how they fit into operations strategy, will be given to you during your Operations Strategy - Level 1 course.
