In the fast changing business and financial markets, the role of operations manager is crucially important to any organisation. As automated processes increase and settlement cycles shorten, the demands on operations managers to embrace change and to become cost effective contributors to the bottom line increases. This book follows on from Fundamentals of Global Operations Management, 2e (0470026537). Author David Loader explores the challenges of being a good supervisor and manager in an environment of constant change, variable workloads and pressure to deliver quality services cost-effectively. He covers the key aspects of the role, which include managing risk, people and clients.
