The operations function of a business is the key to successful performance because it produces what the business sells. In many companies, operations consume a large part of the company resources and generate most of the revenue. The strategic importance of operations means that an evaluation of the operations strategy is critical. The operations strategy must support the overall company goals, supply operational targets that are realistic, and propose a plan that the company can implement to achieve the goals and reach the targets. As the company carries out the plan, it must continually evaluate the operations strategy in terms of performance. If operations don’t meet its performance goals, the strategy has to be updated with corrective action to put it back on track.
