81% of COOs extensively rely on data to increase operational effectiveness in their businesses (IBM Insight, 2021). Data, technology, and customer demand are all changing dramatically. COOs are increasingly leading their organization’s drive towards transformation. However, a trailblazing COO must accept new approaches, re-evaluate their goals, and concentrate on cost management and efficiency to prepare a company for success. As conventional distinctions disappear, a COO must not only serve as a company’s strategic partner but also identify areas for improvement in terms of cost, productivity, and customer satisfaction. A trailblazing COO must reset strategic priorities, accept new approaches, and concentrate on cost control and efficiency with the vision to turn business operations into an engine for growth to position a company for increased profitability.
The MIT xPRO COO programme promises a well-rounded and world-class curriculum that includes: in-depth recorded video lectures by 19 MIT faculty, case studies, access to a success coach, executive reflections and a networking event (optional) on the MIT campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts with peers from around the world*.
