Operation Club – A Significant Endeavour by Institute of Management, Ahmedabad Students

A dedicated club has been formed b he students of Institute of Management, Ahmedabad in order to discuss and share the ideas with operations and industry experts along with gaining practical exposure. The major aim behind establishing this club is to acquire a hands-on exposure in the field of operation management.
Operation Club is a discussion forum or portal that is designed and implemented for promoting student engagement in the operational areas of business and industry. Its establishment is thought to facilitate industry interfacing, collaboration and knowledge building with other management institutes, research and cross-disciplinary applications.
The contribution of three students -  Navaneeth KP, Prasanna R and Apurva Sule lead towards the evolution of the club. Prasanna, a doctoral student of Production and Quantitative Methods faculty with Post Graduate Program in Management (PGP) students – Navaneeth and Sule has brought about a master program to bring an ideal platform for operational activities in this industry. The concept of the club has already got popularized with more than 130 PGP students joining the club already. The club has been formed on October 25, 2013.
These three prime volunteers feel that the concept of operation management in India is highly motivated with the inception of many amazing businesses in the industry like Amazon, Infibeam, Flipkart and many more. In fact, the interest of the multinationals like Wal-Mart in the Indian market and following announcement of FDI, the Indian industrial sector has grown with a boost. However, many people or businesses are still unaware of many different opportunities that they can gain being in this field.
People can easily notice the perceptible difference between the thinking of the student to work in the field of operation management and the things he or she actually come through. However, the same thing has been noticed and the club is formed by these students for filling this knowledge gap and assure continuous knowledge sharing. The club is also getting recognition in other B schools as well.
Pan-IIM initiatives and publications for the sharing of knowledge among all the top management schools, regular blog of the professors about operations management are included under this program. Logistics and inventory management are some new avenues included here other than the traditional areas of operation.
