Operations management deals with designing, controlling and redesigning business operations to improve the performances of the business. Within the health care sector, specific characteristics such as strong monetary constraints or emergency issues will impact the possibility to improve the operations. In this seminar we will dive into operations management in the healthcare sector and look at the specific questions occurring for this sector. At the same time, we focus on how to conduct solid scientific research on an operations management topic in general. This knowledge is applied in writing a seminar paper which will be presented during the last session.
