The course focuses on strategic analysis and on the process of designing and implementing strategies with special emphasis on operational, product and supply-chain related functions. The course presents the methods for configuring operational structure and infrastructure. It also deals with the practical issues that arise when implementing an operational strategy. It helps the participants understand the impact of actions and decisions when constructing strategic resources, which underpin the companys competitive advantage. The case studies used, show the consequences of both bad strategic decisions and the lack of strategic decisions.
The module helps participants to understand the importance of a supply chain, and how its role increases together with the technological progress, globalization and the evolution of traditional mass production.

  • To discuss the impact of choosing strategic priorities (price, delivery time, quality, flexibility of product range, etc.) on various functional areas in order to understand the natural conflicts in developing and implementing strategies; to present examples of resolving the above conflicts using business strategies and product profiling.
  • To determine the place and importance of Total Quality Management (TQM) in the company’s management; to present TQM as a strategy implementing tool (PDCA model) and as a benchmarking tool; to answer the following questions: Where are we? What are our goals? How and when are we going to achieve our goals?
  • To understand the scope and the process of developing an operational strategy, and to review the  configuration of various areas in the operational structure and infrastructure; to realize that a thought-out operational strategy ensures consistency between operational resources and business strategy, and eliminates the potential conflicts of functional divisions and wrong operational decisions, which consequently may result in the loss of a competitive edge.
  • To discuss the significance and the techniques of applying measurements to achieve strategic priorities; to see practical examples of selecting and configuring the measurement system, which ensures the delivery of objectives.
  • To explain how globalization, the development of information systems and the concept of lean manufacturing affect the evolution of supply chain management; to understand a competition primarily as the competition of supply chains, and not single businesses; to see practical examples of constructing and evaluating the competitive supply chain (the SCOR method).
  • To identify the cost management requirements - methods and benefits, advantages and disadvantages of making operational decisions based on financial analysis.
  • to discuss good practice, methods (Ganta graph, CPM, PERT method etc.) and examples of project selection and evaluation; to find out in what situations it is worth using professional project management methods and when to act intuitively; to check the role and responsibility of the project manager and the project team.
