This essential Handbook outlines the latest research on operations management teaching, and identifies new developments in the overall trends of (de)globalisation, sustainability and digitalisation. It highlights contemporary developments in teaching practice, providing theoretical insights into potential future pedagogical directions.

Aiding in the expansion of current training strategies, chapters provide detailed explorations of instructive methodologies such as flipped learning, the utilisation of technologies such as simulations, and design-based learning. Ultimately, the Handbook illustrates how to master the language of operations management through behavioural reinforcement and cognitive change.

This illuminating Handbook will be vital for academics and lecturers seeking an overview of operations management teaching and learning. It will additionally be beneficial for consultants currently training operations professionals.
