Current Job/Operation manager for global sharing CO.LTD South Sudan
Am operations managers in almost any business are key personnel in upper-level management that make sure the company is performing to its best potential and they keep their eyes on multiple areas within the company, assuring productivity and efficiency while seeking to reduce costs and they manage other key leaders within several departments and guide groups of people to complete their individual tasks in order to achieve company-wide goals.
A Big-Picture my Perspective
Because responsible for the overall well-being of the company’s operations, these types of managers tend to have a big-picture perspective. They can determine needs within the company and connect groups to work together to solve problems as they arise. They need to be critical thinkers who can analyze situations and make decisions geared toward the company’s best interests rather than those of a single department. This may mean that they also need to resolve conflicts as they arise between employees and set policies and guidelines for how to complete tasks.
In terms of skills and abilities, operations managers need a healthy mix of hard and soft skills. Depending on the industry, managers may need mechanical aptitude and knowledge of manufacturing equipment, but most certainly will use computers and a variety of related software programs, including customer management tools and budgeting and accounting software. They also need to be able to manage people effectively using good listening, motivation, and communication skills.
As an operations manager also have a good handle on the staffing requirements of the organization or company and that was my real duty all day, they work with HR to hire and train new employees and handle disciplinary issues. Because they are aware of the needs in each department, they can adjust the workflow and reassign tasks to improve efficiency in the operation.
My operation operations Managers role in Various Industries
While operations managers all use a wide variety of skills to do their job, some, particularly in large companies, may specialize in an area and focus within a particular department. For example, someone with a strong background in human resources may become an HR operations manager, overseeing the entire department. Some of their specific responsibilities may include:
- Create and manage the department’s budget
- Define company policies and implement training
- Monitor internal HR systems and ensure compliance
- Oversee hiring objectives and job description creation
- Stay on top of employment trends, legal issues, and best practices
- Purchase software or other tools to improve department efficiency
