Description

Systems thinking for strategic operations management improvement

Join SimkissGuy Recruitment and Aston Business School for this interactive discussion led by Professor Ben Clegg. We will discuss the basics of systems thinking and how it can be used to improve strategic operations management.

This session will give you an opportunity to develop your systems thinking skills to make you a more holistic thinker and become more prepared to become an innovative manager of change. A new technique will be demonstrated and an example given.

Fresh Perspectives

Management thinking is all too often constrained by linear and hierarchical thinking, but as we all know organisations and business are usually more complex than this and should not be thought of in this way; so why do we persist in doing so?

The answer is simple - because we rarely know of any alternative.

Professor Clegg will provide you with an alternative by giving you an introduction to systems thinking and prepare you to become an effective agent of improvement.

Benefits of attending

A taste for systems thinking, learn of a specific technique, and a have a chance to become a systems thinker; this could give you an advantage over more traditional thinkers.

  • A new way to think about challenging and complex issues in operations strategy

  • Gain a competitive edge on your peers

Key Speaker

Professor Ben Clegg's research, teaching and consulting activities focus on operations and process improvement. He draws upon theoretical ideas, such as systems thinking and multi-organisation enterprise management, to implement practical solutions for organisations. In turn practical case studies and insights are used to further develop theory about operations and process improvement.
