Effective operations strategy can create business advantage

In today’s volatile business environment, companies are faced with increased competition and significant risks, leading executives to consider new approaches to the way they do business. Operations can and should be a strategic source of competitive advantage, not just a cost-effective enabler of a business strategy. In fact, the relationship between business strategy and operational strategy should go both ways. Just as a good business strategy can drive operational health, a well-conceived operations strategy can help shape an effective overall business strategy.
