Business Wire IndiaThe Indian Institute of Management Lucknow (IIM Lucknow), one of the premier national-level institutes of management in India and ranked at #6 among the top B-Schools in India as per NIRF, 2022, has announced the launch of the second batch of the first-of-its-kind Chief Operations Officer Programme on December 30, 2022, with Emeritus, the global leader committed to making high-quality education accessible and affordable to all. Rated as 4.4/5 by the past learners of the first batch of this high-impact 11-month Chief Operations Officer (COO) programme, business leaders, aspiring and new COOs will acquire the proficiency and skills to improve their organisation’s operational efficiency, resilience to disruption, and scale sustainable business growth.
81% of COOs rely heavily on data to improve their organisation’s operational efficiency (IBM Insight, 2021). Customer demand, technology, and data are undergoing seismic shifts. Increasingly, COOs are at the forefront of their organisation’s sprint towards transformation. But to position a business for growth, a trailblazing COO must embrace new ways, recalibrate their priorities, and focus on cost control and efficiency. As traditional boundaries fade, a COO must not only be a company’s strategic partner but also assess business gaps across cost, efficiency, and customer experience and develop a detailed action plan to close these gaps. To position a business for greater profitability, a trailblazing COO must recalibrate strategic priorities, embrace new ways, and focus on cost control and efficiency with the vision to transform business operations into an engine for growth.
In this context, the Chief Operations Officer Programme from IIM Lucknow is ideal for mid and senior-level operational leaders and business heads who want to augment their existing knowledge and transition to COO roles. It allows professionals to enhance their practical, industry-aligned skills with a robust knowledge of both digital and engineering operations management. Delivered through a blend of engaging live online sessions and a five-day in-campus immersion at the IIM Lucknow campus, this programme, taught by distinguished IIM Lucknow faculty, will be most beneficial for senior professionals and business leaders with over ten years of work experience. The programme curriculum includes nine contemporary modules, a capstone project, and real-world case studies, which will equip participants to drive greater business efficiency and impact with a best-in-class experiential understanding of operations and supply chain management.
Commenting on the launch of the programme, Programme Directors, Dr Suresh K. Jakhar, Associate Professor, Operations Management & Dr Himanshu Rathore, Assistant Professor, Operations Management, IIM Lucknow, said, “As traditional boundaries fade, a COO must go beyond operational excellence and become a company’s “strategic steward”. In a modern world of complexity and rapid changes, there are two kinds of organisations. “Thrivers” and “Survivors”. As a Chief Operations Officer, how do you ensure your organisation is a “thriver”? How do you abolish silos, increase responsiveness, create new sources of value, and develop sustainable growth? We have designed the programme curriculum to provide the right balance between functional excellence and visionary growth.”
Mr. Mohan Kannegal, CEO, India and APAC, Emeritus added, “As per PWC’s 25th CEO survey, Indian leaders are including new metrics in their companies’ long-term corporate strategy. 81% include customer satisfaction metrics, while 75% focus on employee engagement metrics and 78% include automation and digitisation goals. This calls for nothing less than reimagining the way companies are run. After the resounding popularity and demand for the first batch of this programme, we are pleased to collaborate with IIM Lucknow in offering batch 2 of this executive certificate programme, designed to enable participants to become effective COOs in the 21st-century workplace.”
The past learners have felt empowered with the industry-leading insights from leading IIM Lucknow faculty and the skills to digitise functions, meet customer expectations, and improve operations and supply chains for a competitive advantage. The second batch commences on December 30th and has a programme fee of INR 4,30,000 + GST, with an early bird discount of INR 30,000 + GST for participants who apply by Monday, October 31, 2022.
