Focused Operations Management shows how to do much more with existing resources in terms of throughput, response time and quality. It provides a system view and will touch upon performance measures, operations management, quality, cost-accounting, pricing, and above all, value creation and value enhancement. The methods described in the book are valuable for business organizations as well as for not-for-profit organizations, in service, manufacturing, hi-tech, financial services, retail, and communication companies; and because they are common-sense based, are applicable for both large and small organizations, for managers of all levels.
