The aim of this course is to introduce students to the role of operations in an organisation, how the nature of operations management has evolved and how it contributes to sustained competitive advantage. Students will understand the key concepts of operations management in an organisational and environmental context, and how this links to supply chain management, products and processes, organisational efficiency and effectiveness, and the achievement of tactical and strategic objectives. A variety of operations management techniques and frameworks will be explored, including continuous improvement, total quality management, benchmarking and risk analysis.

By the end of this unit, students will have an appreciation of the dimensions of operations management and its central role for organisations across a wide range of sectors. Students will also have the knowledge and skills required to progress to higher levels of study or employment in positions in operations, logistics and supply.

By the end of this course a student will be able to:

  1. Analyse the effectiveness of operations management in contributing to organisational objectives across a wide range of organisations and sectors.
  2. Apply a range of techniques and analysis frameworks used by operations managers to support decision-making and address problems.
  3. Apply the concept of continuous quality improvement in an operational context.
  4. Conduct a strategic risk analysis (SRA) on the operations functions of an organisation.

There are no formal prerequisites or qualifications required to enroll. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • As the course is conducted entirely in English, we recommend that learners have a good grasp of the English language, both written and spoken, to gain maximum benefit.
  • Since this is an online course, you’ll need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access. Familiarity with basic computer skills would be advantageous.
  • While you can learn at your own pace, dedicating consistent time to the course will help you understand and retain the material better.

          The Course is available as an individual course or under Pearson Qualifications (HNC/HND) in Business. The price will be updated based on the selected option. The individual course fee is higher because Awarding Body applies higher fees for individual enrollment. At the same time, a discount will be automatically added when you order HNC/HND in Business or if you’re already enrolled under these qualifications.

          Courses awarded by Next Gates have no discount, and the fee is already reduced.
