Introducing Operation strategy

An operation strategy is a plan of action designed to achieve the goals of an organization's operations function. The strategy aims to align the organization's operational capabilities with its business goals, customers, and market demands. A well-designed operation strategy can improve an organization's competitiveness, efficiency, and profitability.

One important aspect of operation strategy is to determine the organization's value proposition, which refers to the unique way in which the organization creates value for its customers. This can involve understanding customer needs, identifying areas where the organization can differentiate itself from its competitors, and developing a strategy to deliver that value to customers.

Another critical element of operation strategy is to optimize the organization's operational capabilities, including its people, processes, and technology. This involves identifying areas where the organization can improve efficiency, reduce costs, and increase productivity while maintaining quality standards.

The use of technology is becoming increasingly important in operation strategy. With the rise of digitalization, organizations can use technology to automate processes, gather data, and gain insights into their operations. This can help organizations identify areas for improvement, reduce errors, and enhance productivity.

In summary, a well-designed operation strategy can help organizations achieve their goals by aligning operational capabilities with business objectives, identifying areas for improvement, and leveraging technology to enhance efficiency and productivity. Learn more from the course.

    Procurement Organization

    How to organize the Procurement function? Well, there is of course not one single solution on how to organize your Procurement function. Type of business, history of the company, resources available and more influence how the roles and resources are organized. Still, on basic level, I believe showing a generic, modern procurement organization, with roles and responsibilities, is a good way to introduce buyers in training to the procurement function and the challenges faced by a CPO.
