From Information Technology to Financial institutions, Hospitality, Insurance, Manufacturing and Retail, no industry can function without operations. In spite of being an indispensable component of the business organizations in every industry possible, Operations management usually tends to get overshadowed by other, more-lucrative sounding MBA specializations like Finance, Marketing, HR etc. Symbiosis Institute of Operations Management (SIOM), a constituent of the esteemed Symbiosis International University, however, has devoted itself to this core and critical discipline of business management. SIOM empowers the students with the necessary expertise to help them work creatively and earnestly in operations, with an unwavering attitude to excel.
At the core of every business lies Operations management. It has evolved radically since the Industrial Revolution and has gained immense importance in today’s world. In the early 1900s, determined to build a simple, reliable and affordable car, Henry Ford revolutionized the automobile market with his innovations: Model T and the assembly line. Proctor & Gamble is a more recent example of a company that has redefined the role of operations in the competitive world of modern business, while corporations such as Toyota are the benchmark used by companies trying to redefine their operating models. But despite the countless books, articles and white papers written, few have had success in replicating the culture that characterizes the outcomes of the Toyota Production System (TPS).
In today’s globally competitive market, organizations in every sector need individuals with extensive business intelligence along with the ability to plan, execute and manage a multitude of systems and technologies.
