-Assist with "day to day" Operations-

Operations Management

By detailing what is required from your operations to achieve your overall business objectives, you will keep the business focused on the day to day events that are necessary to keep the business going.


That includes equipment and facilities management and cost; maintenance management and cost; labor force (number of people required for the production and sales goals); the budgets for each of the operations line items; and the planned operating profit margin for each product.


Your operating function is the core of your business and it's extremely important to manage it effectively, while integrating the other business functions into your planning.

  

Business Operations Management Tools and Techniques

  • Describe how your product is made or how your service is provided.
  • Provide information on costs to produce (or service cost) by item and project those costs to align with sales plan projections.

Identify your labor force requirements (by department) - actual and projected based on sales projections. Also include training and development required to meet the operation's need. Include wages and benefits paid (and future employee compensation costs, e.g. wage increases, benefits increases, insurance increases), employee policies and practices for full time, part time and contract personnel. 


Your Business Operations and Workflow

Make sure during your planning process that you consider operation or production constraints. Where is the bottleneck in your operation? Understand what slows your process down; then manage those constraints. For example, if you have a workflow issue (too many 'touchpoints'), analyze the problem using DMAIC (define, measure, analyze, improve, control) and then streamline the process to enable increased efficiency - and less touchpoints.


Once you develop your business operations plan, and define operations management strategies, track the actual results to the projected forecast on a monthly and annual basis. See how your business operations are doing compared to your plan: and manage the differences (if any).

-manage special projects-

Special Projects are duties performing with a high degree of independence, initiative and judgment. 


Benefits of managing your special projects for you:

Better Efficiency in Delivering Services

Provides a “roadmap" that is easily followed and leads to project completion. Once you know where to avoid the bumps and potholes, it stands to reason that you’re going to be working smarter and not harder and longer.


Improved / Increased / Enhanced Customer Satisfaction

Whenever you get a project done on time and under budget, the client walks away happy. And a happy client is one you’ll see again. Smart special project management provides the tools that enable this client/manager relationship to continue.


Enhanced Effectiveness in Delivering Services

The same strategies that allowed you to successfully complete one project will serve you many times over.


Improved Growth / Development Within your Team

Positive results not only command respect but more often than not inspire your team to continue to look for ways to perform more efficiently.


Greater Standing and Competitive Edge

This is not only a good benefit of special project management within the workplace but outside of it as well; word travels fast and there is nothing like superior performance to secure your place in the marketplace.


Opportunities to Expand your Services

A by-product of greater standing. Great performance leads to more opportunities to succeed.


Better Flexibility

Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of special project management is that it allows for flexibility. Allows you to map out the strategy you want to take see your project completed. But the beauty of such organization is that if you discover a smarter direction to take, you can take it. For many small-to-midsize companies, this alone is worth the price of admission.


Increased Risk Assessment

When all the players are lined up and your strategy is in place potential risks will jump out and slap you in the face. And that’s the way it should be. Provides a red flag at the right time: before you start working on project completion.


Increase in Quality

Goes hand-in-hand with enhanced effectiveness.


Increase in Quantity

An increase in quantity is often the result of better efficiency, a simple reminder regarding the benefits of special project management.
