
I was able to see the application
of Operation Management in the
Production field.
I was able to see how an ERP
system is used in an organization,
and how using this system adds
value to the organization, versus
the theory in CIS 360.
I was able to see how an
executive was able to cut through
the noise and make logical and
productive decisions compared to
the Managerial decision making
class.

I learned from Jim the importance of having good
decision makers to help the organization run
smoothly. I learned a little about governance in an
organization and how delegation relieves the
burdens of managers. I learned how valuable ERP
systems really are. I was able to observe how
production is an unseen necessity in the consumer
world. I observed how disagreements were settled
in different functions of an organization
(production, assembly, etc.). One of the greatest
lessons I learned was that adding value is a deal
maker, and that Jim adds value in his processes.

I felt uncertain about the production world
going into this job shadow. I enjoyed the
Operation Management class and wanted to
explore this option more. After spending two
days there, I realized that this is a viable career
option. When speaking with the HR Manager, I
was able to specify career goals and objectives.
The HR Manager was able to help me plan for
the future and be decisive in where I should go
from here.
