From the Desk of ON

Welcome to Operations Nation, the one-stop-shop for operations heroes! They say good things come in threes, so the 3 of us are going to give you 3 things each newsletter:

  1. From the Desk of ON
  2. Featured Ops Hero or Event
  3. ICYMI (In-Case-You-Missed-It) Corner
Why did we start ON? We want to change the fact that there are very few books, articles, resources, programs, or conferences specifically designed for ops leaders, even though without us, strategy would never become reality.

Our vision is a world where operational best practices are just as readily accessible as any other business information, where operations is just as respected a discipline as strategy, and where young men and women are as likely to aspire to become operational leaders as CEOs or Founders.

Our mission is to create and curate a knowledge base filled with ops-specific content, tools, resources, and workshops to help operations professionals not only survive, but thrive, at every stage of their ops career. We will create online resources such as how-to-guides, policy templates, a recruitment board, and podcast, that will be free and accessible to anyone, complemented by offline resources such as workshops, bootcamps, conferences and retreats.

If you want to access our content and resources, please follow us on LinkedIn. If you want to contribute or distribute ops-specific content and resources, please get in touch. We can't wait to collaborate with you!

Making the world go round,
Astrid, Aušrinė, and Charlene

ICYMI Corner

Have you ever struggled to define the term "operations" or describe your operations role? Richard Cadman, Product Manager at Monzo Bank boils it down to three areas:

1) Operations: the supporting functions
2) Business Operations: the customer value chain
3) Strategy: steering the business to maximise value for all stakeholders

Operations roles also vary depending on the stage of your company. 

Pre-Series A: "At the most basic level you’ll be stopping the wheels falling off the bus so everyone else can concentrate on building the product."

Post-Series A: "[You'll be] keeping the bus running on time, then get it running quicker, more efficiently, with lower fuel consumption and a higher passenger count."

How do YOU define operations in your tech startup?
