Hello AdaptivOps Community!
I am new to this community and forum – and am looking forward to listening to my first live webinar this Wednesday. As I was musing the topic of building an Operations team, I’m reminded of a regular conversation among my team about the view of Operations as a strategic function versus a tactical one. Naturally, this view can impact how a team is recruited for, built and managed.
Operations is a critical function, no doubt; and recognized by many companies as such. Companies that view it as a strategic function, however, I view as the most progressive. Operations leaders of those organizations can likely speak to enterprise goals and objectives being met or exceeded on a more consistent basis than those who view their Ops teams and leaders as solely tactical contributors.
When carrying out some restructuring in my department this last year, I shared a couple thought pieces with our team (links below). Continuing to advocate for a strategic position seems in line with what this Community seems to promote and strive for as well.
Thank you for the opportunity to join the Community and I look forward to this week’s conversation.
