|Title||DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT OF ORGANIZATIONAL PROCESSES|
Organizations, whether in manufacturing, service, nonprofit or public sectors are composed of bundles of processes that must accomplish tasks and work together effectively and efficiently. People, materials and information must be configured into responsive supply networks within and between organizations to create value for key stakeholders such as customers. In this course we cover some of the basic yet powerful ideas from operations management on how to improve quality, use fewer resources and be flexible in the face of rapid and sudden change. The focus is on not only on basic tools and techniques for getting work done, such as project management, but also the on key trade-offs that managers must make when designing internal processes and supply chains. We examine how we can harness emerging technologies such as information technology and cope responsibly with other emerging changes in the marketplace and in society.
