Module A: Managing Operations Strategically in a Global Environment


Welcome to the Pathway Program module Managing Operations Strategically in a Global Environment.

Supply chains around the world are a complex web with many co-dependencies on each other’s resources. This all of a sudden came to a grinding halt during the disease outbreak of COVID-19.

Counties placed sanctions on travel, production and broke supply chains with dramatic changes to the way goods could be transported between counties or within state/territory borders.

This global event produced a sudden shock to best practices in the strategic implementation of supply chain management and distribution. This module will focus on strategically managing global operations.

In this module, we will cover:

  • The operations function.
  • The evolution of operations and supply chain management.
  • Strategy and operations.
  • The Global supply chain.
