A Scientific Approach to Managing Operational Efficiency Through the Integration of the Tactical and Strategic Levels of the Enterprise

The article is devoted to the scientific and practical issues of managing the operational efficiency of the enterprise under the current economic conditions. The conceptual-categorical apparatus of the studied problem is developed. According to the results of the critical analysis of approaches to managing the operational efficiency of the enterprise, it is stated that they are limited in post-industrial conditions of their activities. The extension of the management cycle to continuous improvement of the operational activities of the enterprise is proposed. On the basis of streamlining of scientific approaches to the estimation of the state of management of operational efficiency of the enterprise the perspective directions of its development are determined. The methodical approach to assessing the state of operational efficiency management on the basis of operating / competition gaps is developed, which allows to evaluate comprehensively both the level of operating costs and the level of efficiency of achieving the goals of the company. The set of indicators of system for the implementation of the proposed approach in the practice of brewing enterprises has been formed. According to the evaluation results, existing approaches to managing operational efficiency of an enterprise today are obligatory but insufficient for their effective functioning. The scientific approach to the management of operational efficiency of the enterprise, which combines the tactical and strategic levels of management, and the mechanism of its implementation, is developed. Management tools were expanded. Models of operational excellence were grounded. Based on the forecast results of the management of domestic breweries, the feasibility of implementation of the proposed approach in the practice of their activities is empirically confirmed.
