MGB210 Managing Operations

The production of goods or services is the core activity of all organisations, irrespective of whether the organisation is part of the private sector, the public sector, or the not-for-profit sector. While the production of goods and services is the core activity of the organisation, it is only made possible by the integrated support of other functional and administrative areas of the organisation. It is essential that you gain an understanding of the central issues in relation to the production of goods and services, and how other functional and administrative areas contribute to this core activity. A key focus of the production of goods and services is the use of different qualitative and quantitative techniques to assist in managerial decision making. This also gives the unit a broader application than simply goods and services management.
