"This textbook provides valuable insight into the essentials of directing, designing, delivering and developing operations. For the times we live in, the addition of 'responsible operations' at the end of each chapter makes the book an essential text for any operations management course."
Dr Philip Davies, Associate Professor of Operations Management
Henley Business School.
There has never been a more exciting time to study operations management. Fast and frequent changes to the way goods and services are produced and delivered, as well as an increased focus on the social responsibility of operations, present new opportunities and challenges for the business world. Operations management is critical to the success and survival of organisations everywhere, no matter how large or small.
Essentials of Operations Management, 3rd edition is a concise introduction to the subject and an invaluable resource, ideal for undergraduates in business studies, technical or joint degrees, as well as MBA and postgraduate students. Based on Slack, Brandon-Jones and Burgess's leading Operations Management, it focuses on essential core topics, without compromising the authoritative, clear and highly practical approach that has become the trademark of the authors.
