*Operations Management. What Is It About?*

Poem by:

Operations Management… What is it about?
I used to ask this question in the past
I used to hesitate and doubt
About spending two more years in class.

Operations Management seemed confusing
But the first thing I learned about it
Was that simple productivity formula used
To assess how well the company did.

Operations Management performs transformation
By adding value and reducing waste.
It is about replacing inventory with information
And reducing delivery time from weeks to days.

It is also about constraints exploitation,
Continuous improvement and being lean.
It is about reduction in process variation
And competitive advantage that helps to win!

Operations Management is about people
How to motivate them and see their progress,
No one’s job can be seen as little;
Everyone contributes to the overall success.

So now I am standing here genuinely fascinated.
The tools I’ve learnt have opened my eyes.
This skill will help me solve business problems later
And improve companies and people’s lives!

These two years have been greater than all the rest
And all my former doubts have fallen apart.
Operations Management makes me do my best
Because Operations Management is in my heart.
