Product description

From the Back Cover

 

Operations may not run the world, but it makes the world run!

To truly understand the way a business operates, you need to get your hands dirty - that’s how you get to appreciate what's actually happening within an organization. Looking inside for the answers is what Operations Management is all about.

Learn from world-leading experts Nigel Slack and Alistair Brandon-Jones and benefit from their wealth of experience helping improve businesses of all shapes and sizes. Strategic in its perspective, the book offers a comprehensive and practical way to explore key concepts and see them in action through a plethora of international examples.

What makes Operations Management, 9th edition work so well?

●    Real life examples through the ‘operations in practice’ boxes and case studies

●    Worked examples blend qualitative and quantitative perspectives

●    Critical commentaries pose alternative views where appropriate

●    Summary answers to key questions in practical bullet points
