INSEAD Area: Technology and Operations Management Series: Working Paper ; 98/08/CIMSO1 Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD Center for Integrated Manufacturing and Service Operations (CIMSO) 1998.Language: EnglishDescription: 35 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: This paper deals with core course teaching in Production and Operations Management (POM) at the top 20 business schools in the USA (as ranked by Business Week in 1996) We concentrate on course content (course objectives, split between strategy and tactics, manufacturing and sevices, and attention paid to new topic areas) as well as on course delivery (lectures, case studies, factory visits, videos, guest speakers, games and simulations, and other tchnologies used in teaching POM). Whereas at the end of the 1980s some US authors argued that POM teaching suffered from a positioning problem, our results indicate that there now appears to be more agreement on what constitutes POM. We also compare our results with the situation in Europe and show that there are many similarities but also some striking differences
