I am currently in a graduate Operations Management course and since operations within management is not a strong area for me, I would greatly appreciate a lot of help for a following PowerPoint Presentation that has to include an Introduction and Conclusion slide, plus an APA reference slide along with "detailed speaker notes" including APA citations. Slide Count: 10-to-15.
Purpose of Assignment
The purpose of this assignment is for students to learn how to develop an operations consulting proposal.
Resources: Operations and Supply Chain Management: Ch. 25, Microsoft® PowerPoint®
Choose a business in the media having difficulties with its operating model or one which is struggling in your community. (For this, I am having trouble in choosing what would be a good business that is out in the media currently having difficulties with there operating model and what it would be specifically; would greatly appreciate help on this and how to explain it in a PowerPoint Presentation).
Evaluate how all or some of the items from the Operations Consulting Tool Kit in Operations and Supply Chain Management could help this business get back on track. (Attached below is a "word document" copy from my text material to help use for this assignment of my chapter's "Operations Tool Kit" model; let me know if able to download).
Operations Consulting Tool Kit:
Problem Definition- (Issue Trees, Customer Surveys, Gap Analysis, Employee Surveys, Five Forces Model);
Data Gathering- (Plant tours/audits, Work Sampling, Flowcharts, Organization Charts);
Data Analysis and Solution Development- (Problem Analysis SPC Tools, Bottleneck Analysis, Computer Simulation, Statistical Tools);
Cost Impact and Payoff Analysis- (Decision Trees, Balanced Scorecard, Stakeholder Analysis);
Implementation- (Responsibility Charts, Project Management Techniques).
Determine the resources and data you will need to deploy an operations consulting engagement with this business.
Develop a business case including financial benefits on how operations consulting can have a positive impact on the business.
Develop a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation of an operations consulting engagement proposal to the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the target firm.
Format your assignment consistent with APA guidelines. (include APA citations and references; include direct web links of sources used to research information; "detailed speaker notes and no plagiarism, will be checked!).
