- Strategy - makes the case for regarding operations as a strategic asset in their own right
- Methodology - examines the myriad of approaches taken towards process improvement
- Technology - asks why problems associated with the implementation of technology continue to dog organisations
- Human Issues - repositions human input to the top of the operational agenda.
