Operations are integral to every enterprise.  Whether it is a traditional manufacturing product supply environment, retail setting, service operations, financial services or pure e-commerce, successfully defining and executing an operations strategy is critical to the success of the enterprise.  It is vital to understand the role and value of operations as an integral enabler for an enterprise business strategy. The Applied Operations Strategy course is designed to provide essential grounding on both how a comprehensive operations strategy is designed to support the goals of the enterprise, and, importantly, how such strategies are executed successfully. The curriculum will take a topical approach to understanding the role an operations strategy plays, including topics such as; 1) Supporting a new product launch, product direction; e.g., how a legacy internal combustion engine car maker gets into the electric car market; 2) How an OEM supplier configures global sourcing/manufacturing in a competitive sector e.g. auto; 3) Optimizing non-production operations in the services sector, e.g., major healthcare payors; 4) Integrated sales & operations planning for consumer packaged goods or consumer electronics; 5) Coordinating production/supply when sourcing spans multiple sites globally (e.g., consumer electronics, medical products) A case-based approach would be used to cover most of the topics, with guest speakers planned. Other Johnson faculty may participate to complement a case discussion to address the theory behind the practice.  Applied Operations Strategy is a half-semester elective class that may be taken as a stand-alone class or as a complement to other operations management courses.
