The Operations Partnership (OP) is proud to announce its support to the ‘Frontline Collaboration Against COVID-19’ project that is designed to provide humanitarian analysis, guidance and support for NHS practitioners responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. OP is supporting this initiative with management, data analysis capacity and technical humanitarian advice. OP's lead on this is our Associate Director, Paula Sansom, who, a nurse by training, was awarded an MBE for her work during the West Africa Ebola response.

How we can help: Covid-19 (Coronavirus 19) and Remote Management of Operations

Covid-19 (Coronavirus 19) and Remote Management of Operations

In these extraordinary times organisations are having to rapidly change their approaches to managing operations both globally and at a field level. Headquarters are shut with staff working from home, staff are unable to work due to family commitments and travel is severely restricted. However the obligation to fulfil our mandates and deliver for our beneficiaries has not changed. How can organisations adapt and what can be put in place to make it easier to manage such scenarios in the future?

OP has significant experience of developing systems and process for these very situations and much of what we have developed can be found open source (Global Health Cluster, Relief International). While these examples are specific to ‘high risk conflict environments’ the principles and approaches behind them apply in this situation and should help. If, however, you would like specific advice and support please contact our Managing Director, Andrew Moore, at amoore@theoperationspartnership.com
