Coverage of The Association for Operations Management (APICS) Conference: Excellence is the new norm.
I’m the one who was chosen from our team to attend the conference. It could be because I have an MBA in operations management, or because no one felt like spending six hours on a plane from New York to Las Vegas. I have a feeling it’s more of the former, regardless of what our team said.
I arrived late on Friday, did a round of gambling in my hotel (the Hilton), and went to sleep. Next day I walked the Vegas strip, hit up KÀ, the Cirque du Soleil show about warring kingdoms. I loved it’s atmosphere and acrobatics. Then i spent some more money and time on gambling; hmm, why can I never win? And I went to some Vegas night spots, such as Blush and Tryst. What happens in Vegas stay in Vegas. Continue to read full description of APICS Conference.

General Operations Manger
Day in the Life
A General Operations Manager is on the top of the company’s hierarchy which means that you can expect a large office and the ability to make your own schedule. Just because you get to choose your office hours, that doesn’t mean you will be spending a lot of time away from it! As General Operations Manager, you are responsible for the success of the company and will need to work to ensure it. That means spending a lot of long hours and late nights working. You will have many meetings with other executives or potential clients. In large companies, you may be expected to do a lot of traveling for work including overseas.
