Cases in Operations Management PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Cases in Operations Management free pdf The Ivey Casebook Series is a co-publishing partnership between SAGE Publications and the Richard Ivery School of Business at The University of Western Ontario. Cases in Operations Management is unique in its strong grounding in real-world decisions. The cases are structured into six modules each offering an overview of key concepts. Given that most managers will need to function effectively in an international context, the cases draw from challenges faced by experienced managers in such varied settings as China, France, India, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Trinidad, Vietnam, and others, in addition to the U.S. and Canada. These cases continue to illustrate basic concepts while expanding students' understanding of economic, political and cultural concerns that must be interwoven into such key areas as process design, quality and supply chain management.
