J Sainsbury was established in 1869 and steadily grew to become one of the largest retailers in the UK. Currently, it stands behind only Tesco and ASDA in the UK retail market industry. Every organisation needs to have a successful operations management team in place in order to be successful. The three aspects of operations management which need to be covered include managing finances, managing human resources and managing information technology. Certain aspects of each of these areas have been analysed below to consider Sainsbury’s operations management. These resources when leveraged properly would benefit Sainsbury’s. The report begins with the definition and role of several financial institutions followed by a financial ratio analysis of Sainsbury’s which suggests how the financial performance can be improved and how the financial institutions can help. This is followed by an analysis of Sainsbury’s recruitment and selection procedures to assess their impact on overall business performance. Finally, the report considers the IT capabilities of Sainsbury’s and how these have been leveraged. The report ends with a summary of the findings and the recommendations that can be made based on these findings.
