Operations management is getting more and more complex and requires new thinking from operations managers. Our consultants are very experienced with all operations management responsibilities that include defining an operations strategy, understanding social, environmental and economic objectives, designing the operation's services, products and processes, delivering to customers, and improving the operations over time.
Even when an operation is designed and its activities delivered, every operation, no matter how well managed, is capable of improvement. In fact, in the last few years, making improvement has become one of the main responsibilities of operations managers.
There are many aspects of improvement that we deal with, together with operations managers. Once you analyze the most widely used improvement approaches, such as TQM, Lean, BPR, and Six Sigma, you can see that there are some elements that can be commonly found in many approaches: from radical change to radical or breakthrough improvement to improvement cycles to customer-centricity to end-to-end processes to process perspective, etc. Adizes Business Consulting uses various elements and techniques in operations improvement and together with Adizes methodology delivers tailor made improvement in operations management that lead to its becoming the central element of competitive strategy.
