Module 3: Strategic Operations & Controls

The Strategic Operations & Controls module is designed to integrate business model thinking with strategically important operations and controls. Participants learn to limit and focus controls on critical goals and processes while maintaining professional/artistic freedom. Additional work includes setting standards and creating control systems that maintain these standards. The material focuses on craft beer, craft distilling, and other beverage businesses.

The University of Portland has partnered with Orchestrated Beer (OBEER), the leading all-in-one brewery management software solution available! OBEER manages every aspect of a brewery from accounting in the back office to iPads on the brewery floor. Craft Beer Business Strategy Certificate students can augment the Strategic Operations and Controls class with training on OBEER software. This is the exact same training content and delivery method that OBEER’s brewery clients receive, which will give you a distinct advantage on the job market. We’ve woven their training videos, online tutorials, and content seamlessly into the Strategic Operations and Controls class. No other university or program currently offers OBEER specific training as part of their curriculum.
