Scaling Operations

Linking Strategy and Execution

Over the past several decades, operations strategy has played an increasingly important role in business’ success. In this course, we will equip you with concepts and tools to build operations in a way that not only supports your competitive strategy, but also allows you to create new opportunities in the market place.

Scaling operations: Linking strategy and execution is a five-week course dedicated to making strategic decisions that are grounded in operational reality. Together, we will study how to build and evaluate the “operating system” of the firm to maximize value. This involves tailoring the firm’s operational competencies, assets, and processes to a specific business strategy.

Each week, we’ll explore case studies, engage in discussions and examine realistic data. Thanks to our data-driven approach, you’ll be able to implement your learning directly into practice. At the end of this course, you’ll be ready to build an effective, actionable plan to scale your department or organization.

What people are saying

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

roic model tree in one review

The ROIC Model tree and the examples attached to scaling operations with case studies are very well connected and presented Very much effective for professionals.

additional/extra credit project in one review

Little to no math is required and the projects focus on 4 mini-cases and applying the concepts the two profs cover in the lectures (there is also the option to use your own enterprise for the projects or as an additional/extra credit project).

every simple idea in one review

It seemed that every simple idea came with another set of acronyms or obscure terms to remember, which made learning more, rather than less, difficult.

give review grading in one review

the course is very useful, but the video lessons are very very short, no enough examples, forums also need presence of tutor for help .... it would be of better value specially that comes from great professors...i really thank professors for their efforts Not enough students to give review grading and earn a grade.

Great course, the model used by the authors is clear, practical and with sound fundamentals.
