Operations management is the heart of an organization. This growing field influences the design and management of products, processes, services, and supply chains. Those specializing in operation management roles consider the acquisition, development, and utilization of resources that firms need to deliver the goods and services their clients want. Career opportunities within the operations field are plentiful and diverse, but skills, experience, interests, and personal decisions will ultimately influence a person's career path. Additionally, the size, industry type, geographic scope, and organizational structure of a firm will help determine the best career path.
