Why is operations management important? Operations managers design, execute and control the processes that transform raw materials into the goods and services consumers purchase. They also combine their technical expertise, and management and leadership abilities, to create productive, profitable, and, most importantly, safe workplaces. Regardless of industry, to be successful, all companies must focus their efforts on several overarching areas: finance, customer relationship management, internal processes, service or productions, and research/innovation. Operations managers sit at the intersection of these efforts and make decisions regarding planning and scope, cost and quality control, customer experience, and overall efficiency.
