This course explores not only the processes behind operations management, but the importance of innovation in operations management and business competitiveness.

Not sure how innovation applies to operations management? Consider this: Forbes magazine releases an annual list of the top 100 innovative companies around the world. The list includes each company’s five-year average sales growth, net income growth, and innovation premium figures. These figures show how applying innovation to operations management can help make any business more successful.

This course has been developed by the Academic Innovation Hub at University of Derby in partnership with Enscite and is funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

- Gain knowledge of operations management concepts, business models, methods, tools, and best practices used by successful organisations to improve their operations.

- Understand how to apply operations management concepts in a real industrial context.

- Reflect upon and consider particular operational issues that have a direct impact on the competitiveness of contemporary organisations.
