Assignment 2: Discussion—Operations Function in the Organization Structure

Operations are an important management function in an  organization. The role of operations management changes as companies  react to the business environment.

Using the  online library resources and  valid Internet sites, search for an organizational chart of a  manufacturing, service, or technology company looking specifically for  one that shows a change in the operations function. Typically, such  charts can be found in published annual reports of public companies.

Based on your analysis of the chart, respond to the following:

  • Identify the components of the operations function in the organizational structure of the company.
  • Review the annual reports over the past three years and see how the operations management function has changed.
  • Examine the financial reports to understand the competitive and  market challenges the organization is facing and then analyze the  importance of operations in the organization.
  • Explore how the organizational function has evolved to keep pace with the changing competitive and business landscape.
  • If possible, identify an event that caused the organization to  change the role of the operations function in the organizational  structure and offer an explanation of how the new operational function  is better suited to compete in the current business environment.

Write your initial response in 300–500 words. Your response should be  thorough and address all components of the discussion question in  detail, include citations of all sources, where needed, according to the  APA Style, and demonstrate accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation
 

Do the following when responding to your peers:

  • Read your peers’ answers.
  • Provide substantive comments by
  • contributing new, relevant information from course readings, Web sites, or other sources;
  • building on the remarks or questions of others; or
  • sharing practical examples of key concepts from your professional or personal experiences
  • Respond to feedback on your posting and provide feedback to other students on their ideas.
  • Make sure your writing
  • is clear, concise, and organized;
  • demonstrates ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; and
  • displays accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.
