The Operations Room is a forum for discussing current topics in operations management (OM). We have no particular agenda but are looking to identify interesting strategic and tactical developments in the field. Along the way, we aim to create a catalog of articles on OM topics that is useful to both the Kellogg community and a wider set of readers.
We take a broad view of operations. Despite the propaganda poster factory above, we do not interpret operations as simply manufacturing. Rather we think of operations as the on going work of the organization. As such it has relevance for any industry, any market, any firm, any nonprofit organization, or any governmental agency. We thus intend to cover a wide variety of settings and topics.
