Job Description for Operations Director

An operations director manages the overall output of a group of workers that form an organization. The role is a generalized position that requires an ability to adapt to different issues in different departments. Typically, the operations director is heavily involved in financial planning and project schedule supervision. This includes planning for an annual budget, setting financial goals, and ensuring that everybody is on board with changes by working closely with the human resources department. An operations director works effectively not by infringing upon the management of individual projects where a manager is already assigned, but by supervising and making necessary changes to resolve issues that cannot be resolved by the departments internal solutions setup.
