Why Operations?
“In this depressed economic climate, operations and
supply chain professionals will likely be in higher demand as
companies seek to maximize their efficiency and reduce costs.
Sectors like health care that had been less receptive to cost
reduction/operations improvement services are now
reconsidering in light of this tighter economy.”
