Accordingly, operations executives are invited to step back from their day-to-day routines and re-think how to design operations strategy in order to turn the operations into a source of competitive advantage. With this in mind, for this first assessment, you are expected to act as an operations executive and critically analyse and evaluate the operations strategy of your current or previous workplace, or any other organisation from service, not-for-profit, public, manufacturing, etc. that you are familiar with.
