no guidance, no continuity, nothing. My shift NCO couldn't train me because her kid was having issues at daycare, and the flight chief just told us to create a continuity binder with what we know. We asked her for guidance on that task, since the other airman and myself were fresh from tech school, to which we got the "do more with less" speech. It's so important to learn from an experience like that. I will never use that as an excuse to put my troops in the same position. I think that circles back to quality leadership in operation management. They are often looked at as two separate tasks. Management is making sure the people are checking all the boxes, leadership is having them understand why and getting them to do it on their own. Just like with "do more with less", I think that the separation of those two needs to go away. A leader can be a good manager, but a great manager wont always be a good leader. The team lacking in leadership is going to be the one that suffers, they'll just havea lott of good looking paper work to pove it. James Randy Rodriguez Jun 2, 2020 # Reply % " An operations manager can have varied roles in different organizations and may also sometimes perform multiple tasks, unrelated to operations. This manager is usually responsible for providing leadership and is in charge of making important policy and strategic decisions, as well as having the responsibility for the development and implementation of the operational procedures and policies. The Operations manager is sometimes also required to assist the HR department in recruiting if necessary and helping to promote the organizational culture to boost motivation and performance. In addition to this, operations managers are required to oversee budgeting, reporting, planning, and auditing, and work with senior management and stakeholders to enforce policies and regulations which support the overall business objectives. They are also required to work with the board of directors, if applicable, to develop the vision and mission, and create both short and long-term goals, identify problem areas and seek opportunities for the company. Their direct crucial tasks include ensuring efficiency in the production process, and effective communication to manage their team, prevent issues, and also to maintain employer-employee relationships built on collaboration and understanding. Furthermore, they are also responsible for the processes of designing, planning, controlling, improving performance, and developing operational strategies. The decision-making category for operations managers particularly includes three main categories of designing, managing, and improving the operations system. These include taking decisions related to the production of the goods and services, and the quality and quantity of the goods, inventory decisions, and personnel management.
