When thinking about career opportunities, many people overlook the field of Business Operations or BizOps. Professionals in this field play a crucial role in designing and implementing processes and systems that help businesses run more effectively.

Thanks to the ever-growing popularity of business intelligence and big data, there is a growing demand for BizOps professionals in all industries.

Companies like Stripe, Dropbox, LinkedIn, NerdWallet, and more are early adopters of BizOps. Their successes have provided a playbook to other companies—large and small.

From startups to corporate giants, companies are searching for Business Operations professionals who are inherently cross-functional and able to bring in diverse perspectives and data-driven insights to solve some of their toughest business problems.

In this article, we’ll unpack the kind of work you’ll do as a BizOps professional and the industries you can work in. Spoiler—there’s a lot of variety, so let’s dive in!

What is Business Operations — BizOps?

BizOps is a relatively new term and often ill-defined. If you told your relatives at Thanksgiving you worked in BizOps, you likely turned some heads. 

BizOps is like DevOps—applying agile working methods to build technologies faster—but to build solutions to business problems. Process.st provides a succinct definition, saying that BizOps “is the synchronization of strategy and business operations.”

Even though it’s a young role, it’s becoming vital to companies. Companies today are struggling with organizational silos, translating strategy into execution, drawing insights from vast amounts of data, and other meaty business problems. BizOps professionals enter this picture as cross-functional, data-centric analysts, project managers, and leaders. They not only find solutions to tough business problems, but drive their execution as well.

Often, there are teams of Business Operations professionals responsible for designing and improving internal processes, selecting vendors and implementing systems, and managing projects of varying complexity. 

The overarching goal is to make the company run as smoothly as possible so that it can grow and scale. Let’s look more specifically at the work BizOps professionals do.

What Kind of Work will you do in Business Operations?

As a BizOps professional, your mandate is to improve the operational efficiency of your organization. To do so, you frequently leverage skills in data analysis, cross-functional project management, and systems integration & automation to drive business outcomes that grow the bottom line.

As the name suggests, Business Operations is all about running the day-to-day operations of a company. This can encompass a wide range of roles and responsibilities, such as:

  • Conducting data analysis: BizOps professionals use data to identify areas of improvement within the company. This line of work might involve using data visualization tools to spot trends or working with databases to track progress over time. For example, a key responsibility within BizOps is helping with roadmapping. BizOps professionals will inform roadmap decisions by bringing in key insights that add support to—or caution against—proposed strategies. In short, they bring data to the table, so company strategies aren’t just gut feelings.
  • Developing processes and procedures: All companies have processes and procedures for important tasks. For example, responding to and handling the escalation of a customer support ticket should follow a defined process.. However, a company’s standard operating procedures (SOPs), left unexamined over time, can lead to bottlenecks within the business. BizOps professionals step in to develop new SOPs and enable teams to complete work while  reducing waste and enhancing overall productivity.
  • Implementing and monitoring systems: BizOps professionals will help manage the technological systems that operate the business.. They don’t just select a tool and forget it or leave it to IT. Rather, BizOps teams continuously monitor and improve new  systems to ensure they are running smoothly and making the desired impact. When monitoring the systems, BizOps professionals might work with software developers to build bespoke reporting to track process performance. Additionally, to get employees up to speed on new processes, they may work with instructional designers to train employees on how to use new systems.
  • Stakeholder Management in Cross-functional Projects: BizOps professionals are inherently cross-functional. Their work crosses departments and involves different teams. As such, BizOps need to be well-versed in stakeholder management. They’ll set timelines, coordinate teammates, and track progress to ensure that projects are completed on time and within budget. All the while, they’ll keep senior stakeholders updated by presenting findings and offering progress reports.
