Which program outcome do you feel will add the most value for you? Which managerial competencies reflect current strengths for you?
The program outcome I believe will add the most value is Operations Management. The managerial competencies that reflect my current strengths are the following: Communication, Initiate and Direct Change, Problem Solving, Critical Thinking.
Operations Management is a critical component for any business entity because it entails careful management of processes to produce & develop products and services. Operations Management is a global oversight of not just the day to day operational processes but the overall health of a company/business. With my current profession, I’ve been largely involve with operations specifically with Quality Management. It was my goal to seek quality and maintain quality of the products and services we provide. One of the key components to a successful Operations Management is Quality Management/Quality Assurance. Quality is achieved through careful review of processes and finding efficient solutions to even the minutest task. This is what I enjoyed the most. That is why I chose the above managerial competencies that reflect my strengths. I believe strongly in communication. To be able to manage one person to five departments will depend highly on strong interpersonal communication skills. Respectfully, I support anyone who can initiate and be able to direct change. This is what I expect of myself. Both problem solving and critical thinking goes hand in hand. Engaging others in an open discussion of issues promotes teamwork and a healthy working environment. Management is an overall learning and growing process that never ends.
