Everything you need to know about Operations Management

What is Operations Management and how can Fintalent help you hire the best Operations Research Consultants?

Operations management is the collective of policies and procedures that companies use to efficiently and effectively run their business. It is a process that helps companies grow, reach new levels of success, and create new products and services.

Operations management comprises various aspects of business development all of which an operations manager is expected to have adequate knowledge of in order to put up an effective operations management system in an organization. Fintalent, the hiring and collaboration platform for tier-1 Strategy and M&A professionals has available for hire, freelance Operations Management Consultant. Fintalent’s Operations Management Consultants are experienced experts admitted to our invite-only platform and vouched for both experience and expertise. Fintalent’s operations management consultants have varied experience across various industries across the world and are available around the clock for hire.

Operations management experts break the process down into three different eras:

  • Pre-Profit Era: Organization manages costs while they make low or no profit;
  • Period of Growth: Organization starts to make a profit;
  • Exit Period: The company is sold.
    The three stages represent growth in resources managed by the company. As a company grows it acquires more resources, which include supplies, equipment, inventory, and personnel. In this case the size of the company should increase to accommodate these resources.

Profit Era: The management of cost while trying to make a profit. In this stage the company is trying to lower costs and increase revenue. This can be done by lowering the cost of inputs by finding cheaper alternatives or through increasing revenue by providing more services or using a better marketing strategy. Profit is made when a company’s revenue exceeds its total cost for producing its product or service.

Growth Era: The management of growth by helping the company to grow. This can be done through increasing market share, increasing use of resources, products, services, and business units. This will allow the company to make more money and manage its resources effectively. It would be impossible for a company to continue growing if it wasn’t managing these key areas.

Exit Era: The management of the exit process is all about getting the best price for the firm. An exit plan is created when a firm wants to go public or be bought out by another firm. The exit plan details the steps that need to be taken once a deal has been accepted or approved by shareholders or other owners/investors of the company.

No matter what size you are, operations management is a part of your daily routine. Whether you are running a small firm that has been in business for several years or a large company that has been in that business for decades. It is the foundation of your company and the key to getting where you want to be. Operations management helps you understand what your customers want, how far ahead is your production cycle, which products need to be immediately replaced, and where to cut back on overhead.
You can actually improve the way you do operations management by understanding its many facets and adding new strategies for dealing with different factors affecting your business. In the long run this will help generate more profits with less money spent on unnecessary expenses.

The easiest way to improve your operations management is by not making any errors. The best way of course is to learn from past mistakes of similar companies who have gone bankrupt. Failures are inevitable, but the way of dealing with them is crucial.
A big mistake by most companies these days is getting too competitive on their pricing policies. Studies show that price wars do indeed lead to lower prices on the shelf for consumers, but more importantly they can lead to losses in production and loss of market share. Price wars usually cause companies large headaches because they are not only bad for consumers but also for shareholders who will end up having to absorb huge losses or bankruptcy.

The term operations management is associated with financial management. This relates to the process of managing operational activities, which includes all aspects of production, distribution, and sales of goods or services. These tasks require cross-functional coordination that is not solely the responsibility of one person; instead, they are shared among different members in an organization that also involve individuals in various functions such as accounting or marketing.
