Operations Manager Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Operations Manager in Dubai:
"Accept Changes and Take Risks."
At the beginning of my career, I have been flexible which made me grow professionally. However, I did not like changes and would always take calculated risks. As I grow older, I realized that without real acceptance of changes, you cannot have more opportunities. And the higher risk you take, the bigger the rewards.

Operations Manager in Dubai:
"Work hard and you can always get where you are heading!"
Plan, revise your plan on regular basis, follow your plan, change your plan, make a new plan, go back to the old plan, and plan and plan and do as much time as needed in planning, for planning is 70% of this work! The rest is execution of the plan, and if the plan is good, then execution is smooth :)
